Avonmore M.S.  Production of “9 to 5”

Avonmore Musical are delighted and excited to be staging the Dolly Parton Musical “9 to 5” for their 40th Anniversary production this year. The show will run from 23rd – 27th April, 2019 and promises to be a great fun filled show with a very witty script and great music, book is by Patricia Resnick and Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton.


“9 to 5” is about three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can’t do, even in a man’s world. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she? This high-energy show has a jubilant score and easily relatable characters.

Looking forward to seeing many new faces and many of our friends down the years to join us for the wonderfully uplifting show and a celebration of 40 years of Avonmore Musical Society.
