Catherine Cummings Theatre at Cazenovia College presents its fall musical – ‘Working’

Production to feature songs from renowned composer Stephen Schwartz, of 'Wicked,' 'Pippin' and 'Godspell'

— Cazenovia College’s fall musical, “Working,” promises to bring a combination of contemporary musical theater, pop and folk music to the stage. The musical, to feature songs from renowned composer Stephen Schwartz of “Wicked,” “Pippin” and “Godspell” fame, will also include music from James Taylor, Craig Carnelia and Lin Manuel Miranda, composer of Broadway’s “In the Heights.”

“Working” is based on the Studs Terkel book “Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do,” and will present a collection of vignettes exploring people's feelings about their jobs, careers and lives. David Lowenstein, Cazenovia College’s artist in residence, will direct the company made up of Cazenovia College students, local middle school students and adults from the Cazenovia community.

“This show, which originally opened in 1978, had a Drama Desk Award winning production last year off-Broadway. Working has been updated to reflect the current economic times and unemployment situation in the nation,” said Lowenstein.

Performances are scheduled for Nov. 15 through 17, and Nov. 21, 23 and 24. The Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows will begin at 8 p.m., with the Sunday presentations starting at 2 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults; $8 for children age 12 and under; and $3 for Cazenovia College students.

The Catherine Cummings Theatre at Cazenovia College is located at 16 Lincklaen St. in Cazenovia. Event tickets will be available at the door before the event, and may also be purchased by calling 655-STAR (7827).
