9 to 5 the Musical

Bellairs Theatre, Ivy Arts Centre
21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th November 2018

This hilarious musical story of friendship and feminist revenge is based on the pivotal 1980’s hit movie. 


Violet, Judy and Doralee have had enough of their ‘sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical and bigoted’ boss and set out to oust him and create their dream workplace. Set to an unforgettable soundtrack of Dolly Parton's Oscar, Tony and Grammy Award nominated score, 9 to 5 is a story of female payback, packed with feel good moments and, 30 years on, strikes a chord with the current #Metoo generation.
