This spring, Musical Theatre Salisbury is presenting Dolly Parton’s acclaimed musical ‘9 to 5’ at the Blackledge Theatre, Godolphin School.
The musical tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the girls manage to reform their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?
“There is so much in this show, from slick dance routines to heartfelt solos, and that overriding conviction that as far as sexism and inequality in the workplace is concerned, the more it changes, the more it stays the same,” organisers said.
MTS’s own Emma Clammer is directing the production supported by Liz Weager as musical director. Doralee is played by Jenni Toole, Violet is Debbie Horne and Judy is played by Laura Simmons. Derrick Foord plays the baddie in the shape of Franklin Hart, Jnr.
Performances are on Tuesday, May 28 through to Saturday, June 1 at 7.30pm, with a matinee performance on Saturday, June 1, 2.30pm.
Tickets are available through Salisbury Information Centre at 01722 342860 or on-line at Ticketsource.
