Working
Based on the book of the same name by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and historian Studs Terkel, Working takes a look at the unsung heroes in our community--the truck drivers, flight attendants, millworkers, couriers and teachers, among others.
 
Culled from real-life interviews, Working asks why we do what we do, how do we feel about it, and what happens when we find a reason for doing that's bigger than ourselves.
 
Featuring a fantastic collection of songs from Stephen Schwartz, James Taylor, Lin-Manuel Miranda and more, Working offers much for our audience to enjoy and consider, and plenty of opportunities for our student performers.
 
Working performs April 12-14 at the historic Moore Theatre in downtown Seattle. We'll see you there!
 

About Our Program

At Bishop Blanchet, our drama department's motto is "Truth and Courage." Whether students intend to pursue a career in acting or are simply looking to try something new, we believe that making theatre cultivates creativity, sensitivity and enthusiasm in young people, and our program offers a supportive environment where students can make bold choices. 
 
The drama department offers a comprehensive three-part sequential acting program, three classes in theatre design, and a three-show season: a fall play, a student directed one-act festival, and a spring musical.
 
For more information about drama clubs like the Improv Team or the International Thespian Society, visit the Clubs page.
