Photo Flash: In Rehearsal with London Fringe Premiere of 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL
The eagerly awaited London Fringe Premiere of 9 to 5 The Musical opens on Wednesday 29th August 2017 at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Highgate village and runs until Sunday 1st October 2017. This hilarious musical comedy is based on the hit film of the same name and has music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick based on the screenplay by Patricia Resnick and Colin Higgins.
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.
Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?
