9 TO 5: The Musical
23rd to 28th October 2017
9 to 5: The Musical is based on the 1980 movie of the same name, and features music and lyrics by Dolly Parton. It centres on the downtrodden working lives of three women, Violet, Judy, and Doralee. They all work at Consolidated Industries, which is presided over by the sexist, lecherous, and pompous, Franklin Hart.
Co-workers Violet, Judy, and Doralee form a strong female triumvirate through their mutual dissatisfaction with workplace conditions and especially obnoxious office boss Franklin Hart, Jr. After fantasizing about making things better, the women work together to help improve both their personal and professional situations.
9 to 5: The Musical features music and lyrics by country music legend Dolly Parton. Based on the film '9 to 5', the musical is adapted by Patricia Resnick, who also penned the screenplay. Parton starred in the 1980 movie and was at the helm of bringing the show to the stage, combining new material along with songs that she had previously written.
We were delighted to be invited to perform at the E2V family day on Saturday 9th September. A selection of our cast performed a couple of numbers from the show to entertain the crowd and we were also pleased to offer a family ticket in the Charity Raffle which went on the raise £1,384 which is being split between the E2V core charities – Essex Air Ambulance, Little Havens Hospice and Farleigh Hospice.
