Punctuating key moments in the performance are appearances by Spare A Dime's rousing Chorus of Liberty. In the first half of the piece, in the midst of one character's despair, this ebullient group appears on stage with a giant, spinning Winged Liberty dime. The Chorus sings Suns of Liberty, a celebration of/admonition about ever-present (though often hard to maintain) ideals of freedom and democracy.
In the second act, Chorus members take on the role of civil society sloganeers with Work is Progress, a song recounting many WPA poster sayings and describing the full diversity of WPA employment opportunities. At the end of Spare A Dime, the Chorus of Liberty -- and their giant dime -- join the rest of the cast for the final numbers of the show.
