Broward Stage Door Theatre Presents 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL, Now thru 1/19
The Broward Stage Door Theatre will present the regional premiere of 9 to 5: The Musical from tonight, December 13th through January 19th. Based on the 1980 hit movie starring Dolly Parton, the show features Parton's original award-winning title song, as well as her Tony Award and Grammy-nominated score. Outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic, 9 to 5: The Musical is a story of friendship, revenge, teaming up, and taking care of business!
Set in the 'boys club' workplace jungle of the 'Mad Men' era, the musical tells the tale of three dynamic - and very different - women, who conspire together to take control of their company - and their lives, and learn there's absolutely nothing they can't do - even in a so-called 'man's world'.
Dan Kelley is extremely pleased to have been selected to direct the show: "Like many people of a certain age I was obsessed with the movie 9 to 5," he says. "When it was turned into a Broadway musical I went to see it expecting the worst and left the theatre actually loving it. It stays true to the movie and adds some great songs by Dolly Parton. And," he adds, "It's proving to be the biggest seller of Stage Door's season so far."
Kelley and Stage Door's Executive Producer/Artistic Director Derelle Bunn have assembled an excellent team to bring 9 to 5: The Musical to the popular theatre's stage. Carbonell Award-winners Chrissi Ardito and David Nagy will choreograph and musical direct the show. "We have some familiar faces, and some exciting newcomers," says Kelley. "Katie Angel will be playing Violet (the Lily Tomlin role), Jennifer Hope will play Judy (the Jane Fonda role) and Jessica Crilley will be filling some big...shoes...as Doralee (the Dolly Parton role). Local favorite and Carbonell nominated actor Shane Tanner will play the villainous boss Franklyn Hart, and we are also pleased to have Cindy Pearce, Shenise Nunez, Elizabeth Sackett, Courtney Blackmun , Kari Grunberg, Christopher Herr, Andrew Schultz, Clint Hromsco, Marcus Davis, Bobby Underwood and Evan Mayer in this wonderful cast.
9 to 5: The Musical will run from December 13th through January 19th at The Broward Stage Door Theatre in Coral Springs. The theatre is located at 8036 Sample Road, in Coral Springs.
