9 to 5 THE MUSICAL is the hilarious new musical comedy based on the hit movie, that centres on three office workers who turn tables on their sexist boss.

Outrageous, thought provoking and even a little romantic, 9 to 5is about teaming up and taking care of business. Featuring original numbers from Dolly Parton’s Oscar, Tony and Grammy Award nominated score including Backwoods Barbie, Shine like the Sun and the original hit 9 to 5. With music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, 9 to 5 is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged”, the women give their workspace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down.

Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?
