9 to 5 The Musical tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the women manage to reform their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?

Inspired by the cult film, this hilarious new West End production is about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business!

9 to 5 The Musical is written by Patricia Resnick, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton.
