San Joaquin Delta College drama students in May will perform the musical “Working,” a vivid portrait of the working men and women who the world so often takes for granted.
Based on Studs Terkel’s bestselling book of interviews with American workers, “Working” tells the stories of a schoolteacher, a waitress, a millworker and others. The revised and modernized musical has been nominated for six Tony Awards and features songs by award-winning composers Lin-Manuel Miranda, Stephen Schwartz and James Taylor, to name a few.
The musical is just one of several performing arts events taking place at the college this May. Visit dca.deltacollege.edu for details.
Working” will feature 7 p.m. shows on Fridays, May 4 and 11; and Saturdays, May 5 and 12. The production will also take place in Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. on May 6 and 13.
Tickets are $9 for adults and $4 for students or seniors and can purchased online at dca.deltacollege.edu. Tickets can also be purchased over the phone (for $3 more per order) by calling the box office at (209) 954-5110.
