Musical is Based on Iconic 1980 Film with Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton

9 to 5, the musical based on the beloved 1980 film that featured Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as three unlikely friends who bond over their frustrating jobs, will be staged at the Majestic Theater April 14 – May 29.

The story focuses on Violet, Doralee and Judy, whose boss, Franklin Hart, Jr., is president of their company, as well as a domineering and lecherous man.  A fantasized poisoning has him threatening to call the police on the women, but they turn the tables on him, tie him up and kidnap him.  Back at work, they institute changes under Hart’s name, but also discover some “creative accounting” practices.  Hart escapes and returns to work ready to take over when the company’s CEO arrives, is impressed by the changes, promotes Violet and ships Hart off to manage the company branch in Bolivia.  The play 9 to 5 was written by Dolly Parton and Patricia Resnick

The cast of 9 to 5 includes Crystin Gilmore (Violet), Kaytlyn Vandeloecht (Dora Lee), Mollie Posnik (Judy), Joe Casey (Hart), Kait Rankins (Roz), and Chris Rojas (Joe).  Danny Eaton is producing director, Sue Dziura is associate producing director/assistant stage manager and Rand Foerster is directing the musical.  The music director is Mitch Chakour and Stephen Petit is production stage manager.  The set design is by Greg Trochlil, costumes are designed by Dawn McKay, and Doug Wallace is sound designer. Choreography is by Stacy Ashley.

In accordance with regulations from the Actors’ Equity Association, an American labor union representing those who work in live theatrical performance, the Majestic Theater requires all attendees to wear masks at all times (except when eating and drinking), to be fully vaccinated against COVID, and to present their vaccination card (or a photo or other proof of it, on their cell phone) upon arrival.  At this time, no food or drink may be brought into the theater, and needs to be consumed in the Majestic Café.

Following 9 to 5, the Season concludes with Betty & the Patch, a new contemporary comedy/drama by Danny Eaton that had originally been scheduled for this past January, but will be staged June 9 – July 24.  All original ticket holders for Betty & the Patch will be able to see the play on their rescheduled date.

Tickets to 9 to 5 and Betty & the Patch range from $31 – $37 and are available for sale at the Majestic’s box office Monday – Friday 10am – 5pm and Saturday 10am – 1pm; or on the phone at (413) 747-7797.
