CenterStage presents "9to5: The Musical"
CenterStage, with the generous support of title sponsor, Hilliard Lyons, will turn up the heat as Dolly Parton’s brand spankin’ new musical, “9to5: The Musical” sizzles onto the stage.
Based on the hilarious blockbuster 1980s film, “9to5: The Musical” follows the outrageous adventure of three quirky secretaries, Violet, Doralee and Judy, as they take revenge on their egotistical, lying, hypocritical and chauvinistic boss. Their plan, of course, spins wildly out of control, and what ensues is pure hilarity! The show features a euphoric score by Grammy Award winning composer, Dolly Parton and a clever book by the film’s original screenwriter, Patricia Resnick. Mix the perfect blend of Broadway and pop music, witty and smart dialogue and add a touch of Dolly’s charming unique style and you get this hysterical, musical tour de force for women that is sure to delight audiences young and old alike.
Doralee is played by Jessica Adamson, who has been in “Oklahoma!,” “Brigadoon,” “RENT” and “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” Her most recent role was as Mrs. Walker in “The Who’s Tommy.” Lauren McCombs, who plays Judy, has been in several CenterStage productions, including “Next to Normal,” “RENT” and many others. Violet is played by Julie McGuffey, who was in “Light Up CenterStage,” and “Spring Awakening.” Mr. Hart is played by Rusty Henle, who is on his 16th season with CenterStage. Previous roles include Captain Vonn Trapp in “Sound of Music” and the sheriff in “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.”
Starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, the Academy Award nominated film is the 20th highest grossing comedy film of all time and has been named to the American Film Institute’s list of “100 Funniest Movies.” Dolly Parton’s title song, “9to5,” received two Grammy Awards, an Academy Award nomination and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Artists of America. The musical opened on Broadway in 2009 and was nominated for four Tony Awards, including Best Score, and a record-breaking 15 Drama Desk Awards. Since its Broadway run, “9to5: The Musical” has played to sell-out audiences both nationally and internationally.
