9 to 5

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 production marked CHMS' return to the Joseph Rowntree Theatre after a prolonged COVID abscence- and what a reunion it was! The creative team wanted to return with a stage with a bang- and what better way to do it than with Dolly Parton?
