Sounds of Musical Theatre


9 TO 5 SET TO CLOCK ON: 9 TO 5, Dolly Partons West End smash-hit musical is back in business in 2022. The Australian premiere will open in February next year at the Capitol Theatre, Sydney with tickets from 25 October. Internationally acclaimed and loved by audiences and critics alike, 9 TO 5 is pure gold carat fun.

Set the alarm for a great night out at Dolly Partons joyous smash-hit musical 9 TO 5, featuring knock-out songs and high-flying ambitions. A sensation on the West End and inspired by the hit film, the musical tells the story of Doralee, Violet, and Judy, three enterprising workmates pushed to the edge by their mean-spirited boss Franklin Hart Jnr. Resorting to wit, comradery, and cunning, they dream up a no holds barred scheme to kidnap and turn the tables on their controlling supervisor in the most hilariously defiant of ways.

The only question is, will the feisty trio manage to change the office culture to reach their full potential or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit? With a sparkling score by Dolly Parton and a book by the iconic movies original screenwriter Patricia Resnick, 9 TO 5 is the quintessential feel-good show for the times. Full of mischief, laughter, and affection, its gold carat fun. The West-End production of 9 TO 5 was secured for Australia after it opened to rave reviews from critics and the public alike in 2019.

Due to its huge popularity, the West End production was extended from its original 16 week season to well over a year prior to closing due to the worldwide pandemic in 2020. I am beyond excited that we can finally bring this show to Australia, said Dolly Parton. The response to 9 TO 5 from around the world has been incredible.

The overwhelmingly positive fan reaction to this universal story tickles every rhinestone on my body. I cant wait for more people throughout Australia to have a good ole singalong and the time of their life. Producers John Frost for Crossroads Live, Suzanne Jones and Ambassador Theatre Group Productions are thrilled that 9 TO 5 will finally have its Australian Premiere in Sydney.

When the pandemic hit last year, we were two weeks from starting rehearsals. But now 9 TO 5 is back in business, and we are so excited to have confirmed our theatre, set the dates, and were now assembling our cast, they said. After the last 18 months, Australia is ready to laugh, and will love this upbeat, fun, and inspirational production that is full of Dolly Partons fantastic music including the iconic title song.
