What a way to make a livin’
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.
