Cannock-based theatre group, Backstreet Theatre Company, is busy preparing for its upcoming musical, Working. Penned by Wicked's Stephen Schwartz, this down-to-earth yet elevating musical features songs that are based on real interviews.
Running from 21 - 23 April within the beautiful setting of the Prince of Wales Theatre, Cannock, the audience will meet twenty-six workers. From corporate executives to schoolteachers, there's a housewife, a fireman, a waitress, a mill-worker, a truck driver and even a UPS man!
Discover what lies behind the people and their jobs as they reveal their hopes and aspirations in a musical based on the best-selling book of interviews with American workers by Studs Terkel.
Working explores the American workday from the Monday morning blues to a working person's pride in having "something to point to."
Working plays at Prince of Wales Theatre, Cannock from 21 - 23 April. Tickets are £12 and can be purchased online or via the theatre box office on 01543 578762.
