Workin’ 9 to 5 - Dolly Parton musical at the Civic Theatre

By Samantha Derenthal

Dolly Parton’s ‘9 to 5 the Musical’ landed in The Civic Theatre this week.

‘9 to 5’ is based on the hit 1980 movie about three office workers who plan to get even with their egotistical, lying and hypocritical boss.

When their plan spins wildly out of control, the situation becomes hilarious and the laughter is non-stop. The show features the blockbuster title song plus a jubilant score by multiple Grammy Award winner Dolly Parton that mixes broadway and pop with Dolly’s irresistible style.

This sharp witty musical adventure is perfect for anyone who ever wanted to string up their boss! Outrageous, thought provoking and even a little romantic, ‘9 to 5 the Musical’ is about teaming up and taking care of business.

With a cast of 39 and a live 12-piece orchestra, this production will leave you wanting more and singing along right to the very end of the show.

The group performing is made up of members of all ages who have a passion for Musical Theatre, and all members are from South Dublin.

As there is no funding for the amateur Arts in Ireland this group rely on fundraising, sponsorship, and ticket sales to help them stage their shows every year, the community support is vital to the groups continued existence.

‘9 to 5 the Musical’ shows at the Civic Theatre on November 6 - 10.
