9 to 5: The Musical

Directed by Lisa Johnston

Music and lyrics by Dolly Parton

Book by Patricia Resnick

9 to 5 is a musical comedy based on the 1980 movie of the same name, and features music and lyrics by the inimitable Dolly Parton.  It centres on the downtrodden working lives of three women: Violet, Judy, and Doralee. They work at Consolidated Industries, which is presided over by the sexist, lecherous and pompous Franklin Hart.  With some hilarious antics along the way, the three girls form a strong friendship, demonstrating girl power at its very best!  Together they plot the downfall of Hart and rise to the top of the company, changing the working lives of everyone at Consolidated Industries for the better.

With its irreverent look at the 1980s, this show manages to be both funny and poignant. It is packed full of fantastic musical numbers together with great choreography – not to mention a look back at 1980s fashion! – and promises a brilliant night for all. We guarantee you’ll leave the theatre singing the title song… 9 to 5!

Rating 12 – parental guidance recommended – mild mature references.
