Tickets for the Adelaide season of Dolly Parton’s hit musical 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL are on presale today with GP on sale from Friday 6 May. The West End favorite will play at the Festival Theater in Adelaide from October 8 as part of its Australian tour, produced by Adelaide’s John Frost for Crossroads Live Australia, Suzanne Jones and Ambassador Theater Group Productions. Internationally acclaimed and loved by audiences and critics alike, 9 TO 5 is pure carat gold pleasure!
A stellar cast has been assembled to portray these iconic and much-loved roles. Marina Prior plays Violet Newstead, a smart, sassy, and efficient woman who has worked her entire life at Consolidated Industries. She has everything it takes to run the business, but there’s a little hitch…her boss! Casey Donovan is Judy Bernly, a newly estranged young woman who has never worked before and finds more than just a job at Consolidated Industries. Erin Clare plays Doralee Rhodes, a well-mannered, bright and “don’t mess with me” beautiful country gal. It may look like a push, but it’s anything but! Caroline O’Connor is Roz Keith, the administrative assistant who is fiercely – and unrequited – in love with her boss, while Eddie Perfect plays the controlling boss Franklin Hart Jnr.
The cast is completed by Lily Baulderstone, Ana Maria Belo, Zoe Coppinger, Mia Dabkowski-Chandler, Ben Gillespie, Emma Hawthorne, James Haxby, Emma Johns, Jay Johns, Ethan Jones, Antonia Marr, Josh Mulheran, Tom New, Jake O’ Brien, Matthew Prime, Jackson Reedman, Jordan Tomljenovic and Jessica Vellucci.
I am so excited that 9 TO 5 is coming to Adelaide with this talented cast and crew in mind. The response to 9 TO 5 from around the world has been amazing so far. I can’t wait for everyone to have a fun (and fun!) night at 9 to 5!
Producers John Frost for Crossroads Live Australia, Suzanne Jones and Ambassador Theater Group Productions:
We are delighted to be able to bring 9 TO 5 to Adelaide at the wonderful Festival Theater with our glorious cast led by Marina, Casey, Erin, Eddie and Caroline. Audiences in Sydney flocked to 9 TO 5 and loved the familiar story, Dolly’s wonderful songs and this fantastic cast. Join us for the most fun you will have all year!
A West End sensation and inspired by the hit film, the musical tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy, three enterprising co-workers pushed to the limit by their mean-spirited boss Franklin Hart Jnr. Using wit, camaraderie and cunning, they dream up a limitless scheme to kidnap and turn the tables on their controlling supervisor in the most hilarious and provocative way. The only question is whether the fiery trio will manage to change the culture of the office to reach their full potential – or will events unfold when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?
