Tumble outta bed and stumble to the theatre because the acclaimed production 9 to 5 is headed back to the stage in early 2022.
The Australian premiere of Dolly Parton's joyous smash-hit musical will open in February next year at the Capitol Theatre, Sydney.
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 chief executive pays an unexpected visit?
With a sparkling score by Dolly Parton and a book by the iconic movie's original screenwriter Patricia Resnick, 9 to 5 is the quintessential feel-good show for the times.
The West-End production of 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 COVID 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 can't wait for more people throughout Australia to have a good ole singalong, and the time of their life."
