Presented by Appeal Theatre Group

Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton
Book by Patricia Resnick

9 to 5 is based on the 1980 hit movie. Three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can't do, even in a man's world.

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. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?

This is a community production by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited and is presented as part of the New Wolsey’s annual Open Season. Find out more by browsing the Creative Learning section of our website.

Appeal Theatre is supporting Fresh Start - New Beginnings in 2016.

What the press say

"It’s funny, with lots of acerbic one-liners and laugh out loud numbers."

Performance was fab !! We will be back to see something by the same company again :)


Great show - never seen the film so not sure what to expect, but it was soooo funny and there was some great talent in the show also. Get a ticket an go! The Appeal Theatre group raises money for local charities, so you are not only seeing a fab show, you are helping others at the same time. So make a date and see the show
