Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of StarStruck Theatre's 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL
This new outrageous musical comedy is based on the hit 1980 movie and features Dolly Parton's original hit title song along with her new Tony Award and Grammy-nominated score. 9 to 5: The Musical is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Featuring a book by Patricia Resnick (co-writer of the original screenplay), 9 to 5: The Musical tells the story of three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there's nothing they can't do - even in a man's world.
StarStruck Artistic Director, Jennifer Jones, will star as Violet Newstead, the role created by Lily Tomlin in the hit 1980 film. The recipient of the 2012 mARTie Award for Best Performer, Jones will be joined by Jean Ferreira as Judy Bernley (the role created by Jane Fonda) and Carla Holbrook as Doralee Rhodes (the role created by Dolly Parton). StarStruck audience favorite Josh Rhett Noble (the 2011 Recipient of the BroadwayWorld Award for Best Actor) will play Franklin Hart, Jr., the boss you love to hate. Rounding out the featured cast will be the hilarious Elizabeth Casalini playing Mr. Hart's "administrative eyes, ears, nose, and throat," Roz Keith.
The rest of the cast features Matt McClure, Xander James, Sharon Owens, Maria-Elena Alfieri, Cole Phillips, Pete Morello, Jessica Ferreira, Arlette Eulo, Mark Lloyd, Hank Gonzalez, Mary Murphy, Jen Shaff, Lauren Espitia and Sherry Webber.
