STAGE TUBE: Dancap Productions and Toronto Centre for the Arts Prepare for Arrival of 9 TO 5 Tour!

9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL, coming to the Toronto Centre for the Arts June 29-July 10, 2011, is a hilarious workplace comedy about friendship, revenge and a scheming secretarial pool who team up to take care of business by getting even with their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigoted boss! Click below for a video tribute to the show from the team at Dancap Productions!

Based on the 1980 hit film starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, 9 to 5 was the highest-grossing comedy of that year and a groundbreaking look at sexual harassment in corporate culture. The film became such a sensation because women everywhere could empathize with the plight of their "sisters," as well as revel in the retribution served to the big bad boss.

9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL, a nostalgic romp through an era when the word "secretary" was not yet politically incorrect and women strived to "bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan," features the iconic, Grammy® award-winning title track "9 to 5" and 12 new songs written by Dolly Parton. 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL stars three-time Tony® nominated Dee Hoty as Violet (Footloose, The Best Little Whorehouse Goes Public and The Will Rogers Follies), Texas-born Mamie Parris as Judy (Ragtime, The Drowsy Chaperone, Legally Blonde the Musical), and American Idol runner-up Diana DeGarmo as Doralee (Hair, Hairspray and The Toxic Avenger).

Tired of banging their heads against a low-hanging glass ceiling, three unlikely friends conspire to take over the corporation from their bullying boss. 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL still makes relevant statements about pink- collar politics today, but not without the requisite 80s big hair, shoulder pads, and a hysterically funny revenge fantasy, most certainly harbored by many of the "administrative assistants" working 9 to 5 in Toronto every day.
