The London production continues at the West End’s Savoy Theatre where it is currently booking until 31 August 2019. It stars Caroline Sheen as ‘Violet Newstead’ (until 23 March 2019), Amber Davies as ‘Judy Bernly’,Natalie McQueen as ‘Doralee Rhodes’Bonnie Langford as ‘Roz Keith’ and Brian Conley as ‘Franklin Hart’.Louise Redknapp re-joins the cast as ‘Violet Newstead’ from 25 March – 29 June 2019. The show opened in the West End last month, where Dolly Parton attended the premiere and joined the cast on stage at the finale.

9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL features a book by Patricia Resnick, the legendary film’s original screenwriter, and an original Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score by multi Grammy Award winner, country legend and pop icon Dolly Parton.

Dolly Parton said today “I am beyond thrilled to the response from across the pond to 9 to 5 The Musical.  The overwhelmingly positive fan reaction to this universal story tickles every rhinestone on my body! I can’t wait for more people throughout the UK and Ireland to enjoy it and sing along”. 

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!

It is directed by Jeff Calhoun, choreography by Lisa Stevens, design by Tom Rogers, lighting design by Howard Hudson, sound design by Poti Martin, video design by Nina Dunn, original arrangements by Stephen Oremus & Alex Lacamoire, original Broadway orchestrations by Bruce Coughlin, musical supervisor, reductions & extra arrangements by Mark Crossland, musical direction by Andrew Hilton and casting by Victoria Roe.
