Only Two Weeks Left to Catch 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL at Upstairs at the Gatehouse

The critically acclaimed five star London Fringe Premiere production of 9 to 5 The Musical which is being produced at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Highgate Village is entering it's final two weeks running until Sunday 1st October 2017. This hilarious musical comedy is based on the hit. The show has music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick based on the screenplay by Patricia Resnick and Colin Higgins.

Leading the cast as the three female office workers who turn the tables on their sexist boss are Amanda Coutts (We Will Rock You, Starlight Express, Footloose) as Judy, Pippa Winslow (The Sound of Music, Sister Act, Phantom of the Opera) as Violet, and Louise Olley (Dreamboats and Petticoats, Allegro) as Doralee.

Leo Sené (Ghost) plays the sexist and egotisticAl Franklin Hart with adoring sidekick Roz played by Samantha Giffard (Little Shop of Horrors, Children of Eden). Matthew Chase (Stiles and Drew's Peter Pan) plays love interest Joe.

Completing the cast are Blair Anderson (Mary Poppins) as Dwayne, Mark Houston (Musical of the Year) as Dick, and Rachel Ivy (Mama Mia) as Margaret.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy - giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged", the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down.

The production is directed by Joseph Hodges with musical direction from Oliver Hance, choreography by Chris Whittaker, design by Emily Megson, Lighting Design by Tom Turner and Sound Design by Chris Drohan. Casting is by Harry Blumenau. The production is produced by JH Entertainment.

This outrageous, thought provoking and romantically depth musical received 15 Drama Desk Award nominations and 4 Tony Award nominations when it ran on Broadway in 2009. All music and lyrics are written by Dolly Parton and her quick wit and happiness radiate throughout this fun-packed musical.
