Backed by a 4-piece band, Tara performs music from artist like Janis Joplin, Linda Ronstadt, Aretha Franklin, Blondie, Heart and many more.

Working
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. Join us as Midland University shares this production of their season with FMES.
