9 to 5: The Musical
May 30 – June 15
Based on the hit 1980s movie, 9 to 5 follows the story of three female co-workers who have had it with their sexist, arrogant, lying boss and plot to take over the company. With music by Dolly Parton, the show is filled with hits such as “9 to 5” and “Backwoods Barbie.”
In this hilarious farce, three of Hollywood’s favorite female stars—Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton—live every secretary’s dream as they turn the tables on their boss and turn their male-controlled workplace into a model office.
At Consolidated, the office manager (Tomlin), the vice president’s secretary (Parton) and the newest employee (Fonda) become great friends as they share their resentment about their egotistical, sexist boss (Dabney Coleman). When they inadvertently get a chance to take revenge, they institute a host of popular office procedures in his absence—even as their scheme spins wildly out of control.
Full of witty social commentary, this delightful comedy marks Dolly Parton’s film debut and features the Oscar-nominated hit song she wrote and performed.
