|9 to 5 The Musical|
Caroline O’Connor, Marina Prior, Samantha Dodemaide and Erin Clare have been entrusted with the much-loved lead roles in Dolly Parton’s 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL. Direct from London’s West End, the hilarious smash-hit musical will have its Australian Premiere at the Sydney Lyric Theatre in April 2020.
9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy, three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss Franklin Hart Jnr. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the ladies manage to reform their office - or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?
This run-away success on the West End features a book by the iconic movie’s original screenwriter Patricia Resnick and an Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score by the Queen of Country herself, Dolly Parton including her much-loved hit song, 9 to 5!
The Australian premiere has been secured exclusively for Sydney by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW and will be a major drawcard for visitors to NSW.
Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said, “This is a major win for the NSW visitor economy. We expect this season of 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL from April 2020 will attract more than 27,000 visitors to Sydney who spend close to $23 million. Securing this incredible production further bolsters our State’s stellar line-up of world-class events and reinforces our reputation as Australia’s cultural capital.”
