Dolly Parton Supports 9 TO 5 at San Jose's Montgomery Theater, 4/13-22

By: Apr. 10, 2012

Country music legend Dolly Parton has endorsed the California premiere of 9 To 5: The Musical, for which she wrote the popular score. Nationally celebrated arts organization, CMT Marquee Productions, opens the premiere of the Broadway hit show on April 13. The show is produced by Marquee Productions, which mounts an annual musical with proceeds benefiting Children's Musical Theater San Jose. Marquee Productions shows feature adult actors from throughout the South Bay who donate their time to the organization. The musical runs through 22 at downtown San Jose's historic Montgomery Theate atr.

The musical is based on the 1980 movie which starred Jane Fonda, Lilly Tomlin and Ms. Parton, herself. The production ran on Broadway in 2009 featuring actress Allison Janney, and was nominated for four Tony Awards and a Grammy Award for best original score. "Bravo! I am so proud to hear that CMT Marquee Productions has chosen San Jose's wonderful historic Montgomery Theater to present "9 to 5: The Musical," says Ms. Parton. "We can't do enough to give training and performance opportunities to the children and young adults in our communities. Very special thanks to the National Endowment for the Arts, individual donors and local organizations for making this all possible. I truly hope you enjoy my music."

The Marquee Productions presentation of 9 To 5 is directed and choreographed by Kevin R. Hauge, who has been with the company for seventeen years, and includes prominent Silicon Valley business executive and former San Jose mayoral candidate Michael Mulcahy in a lead role. 9 To 5 marks the second major premiere in one season for Marquee Productions, after having produced the West Coast premiere of Disney's Tarzan.
