At each of the four public performances of WORKING, audience patrons of all ages will be eligible to earn a "day's pay!" (A Day's Pay will be based on Michigan's Minimum Wage of $9.45 x 8 hours of work)

  • Audience patrons will be able to purchase a "working time card" for $1.00 in the theatre lobby before the show or during intermission.
  • All each patron needs to do is sign their name on the card
  • After the show, the WORKING Barrell will be brought on stage and a lucky audience patron's name will be drawn from the Barrell and go home with a day's pay!
  • Winning audience members each night must be present to win.

Goodrich High School Theatre brings to life Broadway Musical for all!

Goodrich High School Theatre continues the 2019-20 theatre season with the Broadway Musical WORKING by Studs Terkel, adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, with additional contributions to the libretto by Gordon Greenberg. It will be performed at the Raymond C. Green Performing Arts Center following approval from national, state and local authorities during the current Coruna-Virus Crisis.

The hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this unique, extraordinary musical. That the everyday lives of common men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock.

Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman and the housewife, just to name a few. It's an original look at the American landscape that is simply impossible to forget.
