Following a sell-out 2019 tour, Dolly Parton’s iconic 9 To 5 will return to The Palace Theatre in 2020.
The Musical tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss.
To get revenge they concoct a plan to kidnap their despicable supervisor and take over the business themselves, but all does not go quite to plan. Inspired by the 1980’s hit film, 9 To 5 The Musical promises a hilarious new West End production about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business!
Originally opening in the West End in February this year, the musical features a book by Patricia Resnick, the legendary film’s original screenwriter and writer of this current hit musical version, and an original Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score by multi-Grammy Award winner, country legend and pop icon Dolly Parton. Including the infamous title number and other much-loved songs, including Heart to Hart and Shine Like The Sun.
Directed by Jeff Calhoun and produced by Ambassador Theatre Group Products 9 To 5 The Musical will play at The Palace Theatre Manchester from August 25 to August 29, 2020.
