Hoty (Follies, The Will Rogers Follies), who also performed the role of Violet in the national tour of 9 to 5 in 2010, stars opposite Holly Davis as Judy Bernley and Shayla Osborn as Doralee Rhodes.
("I am so disappointed that, due to a very recent back injury, I will now not be able to perform in North Shore Music Theatre's production of 9 to 5: The Musical. It's disappointing to me for so many reasons, especially after meeting with the creative team involved and knowing what a first rate production this is going to be," Arnaz said in a recent statement.)
Directed and choreographed by Richard Stafford, performances continue through Oct. 7. 9 to 5 The Musical is based on the film of the same name and features Dolly Parton's original hit title song along with her Tony Award and Grammy-nominated score.
Featuring a book by Patricia Resnick (co-writer of the original screenplay), 9 to 5 The Musical, according to press notes, "tells the story of three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do — even in a man’s world."
The 9 to 5 creative team includes Mark Hartman (music director), Phillip Witcomb (scenic designer), Paula Peasley-Ninestein (costume designer), Phillip Watson (lighting designer) and Jessica Paz (sound designer).
