9 To 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic.
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 workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down.
Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?
The production will be directed by Joseph Hodges, with Musical Direction by Oliver Hance, Choreography by Chris Whittaker and Casting by Harry Blumenau.
“director Joseph Hodges and company fill every square inch with irresistible energy.” – Sophie Adnitt, British Theatre ★★★★
“a highly enjoyable production which makes for a joyful evening. It is always a great experience to see a musical Upstairs at the Gatehouse and even more so when it is a rarely-produced piece like this.” – Patrick Honoré, Musical Theatre Review ★★★★
“it’s impossible not to be blown away by the energy and conviction of the entire cast.” – Matthew Partridge, ★★★★
“It is food for thought, a joy to watch and listen to, but best of all, it is very very funny.” Aline Waters
