WATERTOWN – Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down.

9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic.

Performances are Thursday, July 18 through Saturday, July 20 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, July 21 at 3:00 pm. General admission tickets are $15, Students, Seniors and Military $12, and children 12 and under $10. Tickets are available online at watertownlyrictheater.org or at the door one hour prior to curtain. Show is rated PG for language and content.
