ABOUT THE SHOW
Based on the hit movie, 9 to 5 features music written for the show by Dolly Parton. It is upbeat, funny, full of great singing & dance numbers and delivers a message about empowerment that is relevant and important today.
9 to 5: The Musical is set in the late 1970s at the fictional Consolidated Industries. Three female employees (Violet, Judy and Doralee) are tired of being overlooked, belittled and harassed by their boss (Franklin Hart). What starts out as a fantasy of getting rid of him turns into a comical reality when they end up kidnapping him by accident. The three women then take control of the office and institute a series of new policies, which increase employee morale and productivity.
The original movie, starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton was made in 1980, and the musical adaptation was written in 2008. Besides the title song written for the original movie, the rest of the music was written by Dolly Parton for the musical.
