Tuesday 4th to Saturday 8th April 2017

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


We have just gone into rehearsal for our first adult musical in two years and we are very excited to get underway.  The production team is old friends Justine Sutcliffe and Helen Clarkson and this year we are delighted to have Lisa Parker on board as our choreographer.  Lisa has worked with Alex on HYT shows and is keen to put our cast through their paces!  Our cast is a mix of old and new faces and we have people traveling from quite a distance to join us this time – it seems our reputation is growing!


9 To 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, is based on the hit movie. Set in 1979 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?


This high-energy show has a jubilant score and easily relatable characters.  Making 9 To 5 the perfect show for us at Todmorden Hippodrome – book your tickets now!
