‘9 to 5’ mu­si­cal in New Ross

New Ross Standard - - NEWS -

WON­DER­FUL com­edy 9 To 5 The Mu­si­cal is hit­ting the St Michael’s Theatre stage in New Ross, start­ing on Tues­day, Novem­ber 20.

Based on the 1980 movie of the same name with mu­sic and lyrics by coun­try mu­sic icon Dolly Par­ton, who starred in the orig­i­nal movie along­side Lilly Tom­lin and Jane Fonda. The mu­si­cal tells the story of three of­fice girls work­ing for a dom­i­neer­ing, chau­vin­is­tic boss. Con­tin­u­ously sub­jected to his lech­er­ous ad­vances and over­looked for pro­mo­tion in favour of male col­leagues, the girls fan­ta­sise about turn­ing the ta­bles un­til they fi­nally con­coct a scheme for re­venge, kid­nap­ping their boss and hold­ing him cap­tive in his own home. In his ab­sence and un­be­knownst to any of their co-work­ers, the girls as­sume con­trol of the of­fice and be­gin to im­ple­ment new poli­cies which ac­tu­ally trans­form the work­place. But how long can they keep up the pre­tence, how long be­fore other em­ploy­ees be­come sus­pi­cious of the boss’s ab­sence and how long un­til the boss fi­nally es­capes his cap­tors’ clutches? Tick­ets re avail­able from St Michael’s Theatre.
