9 to 5: The Musical

July 17 – Aug. 10, 2014
Tickets go on sale June 3, 2014

Music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, book by Patricia Resnick (based on the 1980 hit movie “Nine to Five”)

Based on the popular 1980 movie, this musical tells the story of three women who conspire to take control of their company and who learn there's nothing they can't do – even in a man's world. Violet, Doralee and Judy are co-workers, each of whom is struggling with the monotony of corporate life and the demands of their sexist pig of a boss. When the women make imaginary plans to get even, they have no idea what trouble ends up coming their way. Featuring a Tony Award and Grammy-nominated score by Dolly Parton, "9 to 5" offers nostalgic fun with a return to that famous, scheming secretarial pool.

Recommended for ages 11 and older. Parental discretion advised for bawdy humor and mature themes.
