What a way to make a livin’

Bray People - - PICTURES -

A lit­tle bit of Dolly Par­ton’s magic came to Bray re­cently, with Bray Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety’s pro­duc­tion of the coun­try singer’s hit mu­si­cal ‘9 to 5’.

The so­ci­ety worked a lit­tle more than that them­selves, pre­par­ing for their four-night run at Mer­maid last week.

The au­di­ences were thrilled with the per­for­mances, re­ward­ing the cast and crew with stand­ing ova­tions.

Au­di­ence mem­ber Sara Clack was the lucky win­ner of a spe­cial raf­fle prize of a two-night stay in the Pow­er­scourt Ho­tel.

‘ Thanks to every­one who came to sup­port us and a spe­cial thanks to all our ad­ver­tis­ers, pa- trons and spon­sors,’ said a spokesper­son for BMS.

In 9 to 5, pushed to boil­ing point three fe­male co-work­ers con­coct a plan to get even with the sex­ist, ly­ing, hyp­o­crit­i­cal, bigot they call their boss.

Th­ese un­likely friends take con­trol of their of­fice and learn there is noth­ing they can’t do, even in a man’s world!

As well as be­ing all about equal­ity in the work­place and in life, there were loads of laughs in the show.

The clas­sic theme tune 9 to 5, Shine Like the Sun and other hits kept every­one en­ter­tained through­out the show.
