"Working" the Musical Opens Feb. 14th
Isadoora Theatre Company to stage production at Door Community Auditorium

(Fish Creek, WI) The words of some of America's most uncommon, and unsung, heroes come to life as Isadoora Theatre Company stages “Working,” a musical based on real life interviews of working Americans. The musical opens on Thurs, Feb 14 at 7:30 pm at the Door Community Auditorium, Fish Creek and continues a run of performances through Sun, Feb 24.  Tickets are $15 with all seats reserved and are available through the Door Community Auditorium box office by phone (920.868.2728) or via

“Working,” is a musical about people who are never in musicals.  Hard hats, cleaning ladies, parking lot attendants, and bricklayers are portrayed as a chorus line of life when these characters take on the leading roles.  A trucker on a long haul, an operator on a short break, the waitress rushing about a full restaurant: all get a chance to speak their mind with their own musical number.

The show is a celebration of the common person, like attending the county fair or a Labor Day cook out.  The musical chronicles a day in the life of twenty six average American workers.  All of their monologues are true stories, some delivered verbatim, from real life interviews taken by Studs Terkel for his identically titled book, “Working.”

Adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, the show features music by Schwartz, James Taylor, Micki Grant, Craig Carnelia, and Mary Rodgers, and lyrics by Schwartz, Grant, Carnelia, Taylor, and Susan Birkenhead.

Isadoora Theatre Company, in its 6th season, produces three thought provoking shows, provides theatre and audition workshops, and provides opportunities for hundreds of amateur actors to experience the joy of theatre each year.  For more information about Isadoora, please visit

Directed by Amy Shaw with musical direction by Mary Hall, “Working” evening performances are at 7:30 pm; with Sunday performances at 2 pm.  Box office hours are Monday through Friday, 10 – 3 pm; weekend show days, 11 – 3 pm; and one hour prior to a performance.  The Door Community Auditorium is located in Fish Creek, just north of the town center on Highway 42.
