About the Production Process
For the duration of the rehearsal and performance process, the cast and crew will practice social distancing, sanitization, and the utilization of masks.
The first cast meeting will take place on Thursday, March 4 at 7:00pm via Zoom with the first in person rehearsal taking place on Monday, March 8 at 7:00pm.
Rehearsals will take place at Theatre Macon, Mondays through Fridays from 7:00-9:00pm. Music and “staging” will be learned during this time.
During the rehearsal period, the cast will rehearse in small groups as best as possible. Closer to the end of the production process the full cast will rehearse and perform together socially distanced.
The production will be pre-recorded for production April 12-16. There will not be a live audience for the performances. The production runs Thursday, April 29 through Sunday, Sunday, May 2, 2020.
This production is a pilot which means that our recording will be seen by theatre professionals with Music Theatre International in New York City. Additionally, because of the nature of this show and the pilot process we will be building a large portion of the production from scratch. So it will have each of your hands in the creation of our version of our show and will specifically be suited for our community.
We look forward to seeing your audition video and getting to work on this production. If you have any questions, please reach out to our Artistic Director, Richard Frazier, at firstname.lastname@example.org

From The Book by Studs Terkel

Working is a musical exploration of 26 people from all walks of life. While most of the professions have been updated, the strength of the show is in the core truths that transcend specific professions; the key is how people's relationships to their work ultimately reveal key aspects of their humanity, regardless of the trappings of the job itself. The show, set in contemporary America, contains timeless truths. This new version of Working allows the audience to get a rare glimpse of the actors and technicians, working to put on a show. This raw adaptation only enhances the realistic and relatable nature of the subject matter.
Note: This production is a special event and not included in the 2020-2021 Season Subscription Packages.
