The cast performs the opening number “All the Livelong Day” at the high school stadium (provided by OPRFHS Theater Department).

Huge kudos to the OPRF High School drama department, managers, actors, dancers and crew for their virtual version of Working. I loved it. I was delighted with the modernization of this fabulous play. I saw Working in its original form at Goodman Theater before it went to Broadway. 

I wasn’t prepared for the additions of COVID, cellphones, texting, etc., but they were right on. It was actually touching to see the scenery of Oak Park: the high school, houses, storefronts, streets, snow (!), and graduation, which brought tears, thinking of what we’ve been through and what we’ve missed during this crazy, sad year of school and work. Thank you for taking on this production and gifting our community with this treasure of a play and the treasure of all your talents and creativity.
