The Butler Community College Theatre Department opens its 2022-2023 theatre season with a modern adaptation of Moliere’s classic comedy.  Brimming with zany characters that include the crafty title character “Scapin”, Butler audiences will be treated to this uproarious romp.  Critics have called it “a tour de force of comedy”.

Following his tale (no pun intended) in TRULY FRANK, Alvin the Alligator returns to the stage, joined by his buddy, Frank. In this latest story, narrated by Digby’s favorite English teacher, Miss Chadwick, Alvin guides the students of Digby Prep School in discovering the meaning of confidence via a visiting foreign exchange student to the Digby campus.

In 1974 Studs Terkel interviewed people in their jobs and created the bestselling book, Working: People Talk About What they Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do. In 1978, Steven Schwartz and Nina Faso created the musical Working using the book as source material, and in 2012 revived the show adding a few new songs and updating some of the language. Songs by Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Rogers and Susan Birkenhead, Stephen Schwartz, and James Taylor.
