WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Multi-award-winning Foothill Music Theatre presents 9 to 5 The Musical, featuring eight-time Grammy Award winner Dolly Parton's Tony Award-nominated, country music-infused score. Based on the 1980 film of the same name, 9 to 5 The Musical is the story of three working women, eager to bust through the glass ceiling, who team up against their "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" of a boss and take care of business. Set in the late 1970s, this romp through the Rolodex Era is a hilarious and empowering story of friendship, love, and women's roles in workplace, relationships, and society. Aided by a quick-witted book by the movie's screenwriter Patricia Resnick, Variety called 9 to 5 The Musical a "light and lively crowdpleaser," and the Telegraph hailed it as "a winning mix of feminist indignation, raucous good humour and…genuinely touching moments."
