Current Open Auditions — Sept. 24 & 25


9 to 5 The Musical

9 to 5 The Musical

Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton
Book by Patricia Resnick

9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and women’s roles both at work and in relationships set in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.
