9 to 5 the Musical

Based on the hit movie, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, 9 to 5: The Musical is a side- splitting salute to corporate sisterhood and workplace revenge! Shortly after three co-workers share their fantasies of how they’d give their sexist, egotistical, oppressive boss the boot, events conspire to allow them to take control of the company that’s been keeping them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?
