9 to 5 Auditions!

Actors and Artists of Fayette County presents auditions for Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" on Sunday, May 22nd from 1:00pm to 5:00pm and Monday, May 23rd from 6:00pm to 10:00pm!

Synopsis:

Three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can't do, even in a man's world.

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.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers 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. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?
