VOS Presents

9 to 5: The Musical

May 4-13, 2018 at the MacPherson Playhouse

In May 2018, VOS will present Dolly Parton’s award winning 9 to 5: THE MUSICAL. Winner of the LA Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Score, 9 to 5: THE MUSICAL also received 4 Tony Awards nominations and 13 New York Drama Desk Award nominations. With music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, 9 to 5: THE MUSICAL is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie of the same name starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin. This high-energy show, a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era, is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers 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! Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?
