9 To 5 - The Musical
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL is getting down to business - with a strictly limited season at the West End's Savoy Theatre.

Starring Louise Redknapp, Amber Davies, Natalie McQueen, Bonnie Langford and Brian Conley, the smash-hit musical features a book by the iconic movie's original screenwriter Patricia Resnick and an Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score by the Queen of Country herself, Dolly Parton.

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 ladies manage to reform their office - or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?

Inspired by the iconic film and brought to you by Dolly herself, this hilarious new West End production is about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business!

CAROLINE SHEEN JOINS 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL AS LOUISE REDKNAPP RECOVERS FROM INJURY (1AMS 8 JANUARY 2019)

Caroline Sheen will be joining the company of Dolly Parton's 9 To 5 The Musical in the role of Violet Newstead at the Savoy Theatre, London from 28 January 2019 until the end of March. Louise Redknapp will re-join the company to play the role in the musical from the end of March.

Sheen is renowned for her leading roles in the West End, US and on tour throughout the UK.

Due to an injury this week, Redknapp has had to temporarily withdraw from performing the role of Violet. The recovery time recommended means the singer and actress is no longer able to properly rehearse the show in the remaining time left before opening. Earlier this week, a statement from the producers said:
"Together we have made the difficult decision to delay Louise's start date in the show. We hope that Louise will start performances sometime towards the end of March/early April 2019. Everyone at 9 to 5 wishes Louise a speedy recovery and we look forward to welcoming her back."

9 To 5 The Musical opens for a limited season at London's Savoy Theatre from 28 January to 31 August 2019. Sheen will join Amber Davies as Judy Bernly, Natalie McQueen as Doralee Rhodes, Brian Conley as Franklin Hart and Bonnie Langford as Roz Keith.
