“Working” paints a vivid portrait of the men and women 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. This second collaboration between NSU and ACT promises to be a highly original look at the American landscape that’s simply impossible to forget.

Cast Needed

AGES 20 to 60

We are looking for a very ethnically diverse cast and encourage people from all backgrounds to audition for “Working.”


Those auditioning should be ready to sing 24 bars from a song of their choice, dance and read from the script.

ACT office, 417 S. Main St.,
