Rogers Little Theater will present the Broadway hit 9 to 5: The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, on February 8-10, 14-17, 21-24, Thursday – Saturday, 8 p.m. and Sunday, 2 p.m. at the Victory Theater in downtown Rogers.
Production director Ed McClure said he was excited RLT would be the first community theater in Arkansas to present 9 to 5: The Musical.
Based upon the 1980 hit movie, 9 to 5: The Musical follows the hilarious and familiar story–pushed to the boiling point by their boss, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. They conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do — even in a man’s world. Set in the late ’70s, 9 to 5: The Musical is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic, 9 to 5: The Musical is about teaming up and taking care of business.
9 to 5: The Musical is presented in part by Title Partner Unilever and Celebratory Partner Allard Financial Advisors.
