SPRING MUSICAL

 Written by musical theatre legends Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, and featuring songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, James Taylor and other incredible artists, Working is an inspiring celebration of what Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Studs Terkel called “the extraordinary dreams of ordinary people." This much-beloved musical is based on a collection of real-life interviews conducted by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Studs Terkel.
 
Our intrepid student-performers inhabit multiple roles from a cross-section of American lives and backgrounds--from teachers to students, big-rig truck drivers to corporate executives, blue-collar construction laborers to waitresses to hospice nurses, and more.

Working performs at the Moore Theatre on April 12th and 13th at 7:30, and April 14th at 2:00.

About Our Program

At Bishop Blanchet, our drama department's motto is "Truth and Courage." Whether students intend to pursue a career in theatre 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.
 
Students can participate in the performances both on stage acting and behind the scenes with one of our five crews: Stage Crew, Costume Crew, Hair and Makeup Crew, Marketing Crew, and Stage Management.
