Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins for songs like “I Like to Move It” and “Best Friends” in this musical adventure of a lifetime.

Working (2012), to be presented by Wellesley College Theatre November 15 – 19, is a musical story updated from 1978 with 2 new songs from Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, and directed by Nora Hussey, this lively show presents the age-old question of what defines us as humans. The answer unfolds in the workdays of people from all walks of life, that an occupation is more than just a job for the average working American.
The Wellesley College student cast portrays workers across the spectrum of class and culture in American life: we are presented with the bar pianist, a waitress, a salesman, a corporate executive, and a steelworker, to name a few.
