The cast will be led by Louise Redknapp as Violet Newstead, Amber Davies as Judy Bernly, Natalie McQueen as Doralee Rhodes, and Brian Conley as Franklin Hart. Tickets will go on sale September 18.
9 to 5 features a book by Patricia Resnick, the 1980 film’s original screenwriter, and an original, Tony-nominated score by country legend Parton (who played Doralee in the film).
The musical tells the story of three workmates pushed to the boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, the women fight to reform their office.
The production will also have choreography by Lisa Stevens, set and costume design by Tom Rogers, lighting design by Howard Hudson, musical supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Mark Crossland, musical direction by Andrew Hilton, and casting by Victoria Roe.
The musical was originally produced on Broadway by Robert Greenblatt in April 2009. It is produced in London by Ambassador Theatre Group and Selladoor Worldwide with Gavin Kalin Productions, Glass Half Full Productions, and Hartshorn – Hook Productions.
