This weekend: High School Musical "WORKING"

The high school musical is here!  With three shows in the Ferrini Dramatics Center this weekend, including a Sunday matinee, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to see Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School’s WORKING cast and crew in action. 

WORKING debuts Friday, November 14th at 8pm, followed by an evening performance Saturday, November 15th at 8pm and finally a matinee Sunday, November 16th at 2pm.   Tickets, available at the door and payable by cash or check, are $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. 

WORKING is based on the book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Studs Terkel.  Called ”A CHORUS LINE for the working man” WORKING explores an American workday through the eyes of 26 people from all walks of life as they sing and talk about their jobs, their regrets and their aspirations.  This genuinely funny, and at times touching musical features songs from the all-star composers such as James Taylor, and was adapted for the stage by Stephen Schwartz (WICKED, GODSPELL). 

Come out to support your local high school arts program.  We hope to see you there.
