About 9 to 5 the Musical

The smash-hit musical features a book by the iconic movie’s original screenwriter Patricia Resnick and an Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score by the Queen of Country herself, Dolly Parton.

9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the ladies manage to reform their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?

Inspired by the hit film and brought to you by Dolly herself, this hilarious West End production is about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business!

Tell Me More

Inspired by the cult-favorite film and with a score from legendary country music star Dolly Parton, “9 to 5” is an uplifting musical about teamwork, unlikely friendships, and female empowerment.

The story focuses on three women who all work at Consolidated Industries — Violet, Judy and Doralee. Their sexist boss, Franklin Hart, neglects to give Violet a promotion again, gives Judy an awful first day, and spreads rumours that Doralee is having an affair. The women are almost at boiling point, and unite to jokingly make plans for how they could kill their selfish boss. After unintentionally poisoning him the following day, they tie him up and decide to imprison him. With Hart absent, the women turn the office around and introduce more benefits to the staff, including childcare, full lunch hours, and rehab programs. When the Chairman of the Board arrives to praise the company’s increased productivity, will Violet finally get the promotion she deserves?
