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 girls manage to
reform their office - or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected
visit? Inspired by the cult film this hilarious new West End production is
about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business!

McQueen as ‘Doralee Rhodes’ and Brian Conley as ‘Franklin Hart’.

On 11th January 2019, the producers annouced that:
“Due to an injury this week, Louise Redknapp has had to temporarily withdraw
from performing the role of Violet in 9 to 5 The Musical. The recovery time
recommended means Louise is no longer able to properly rehearse the show in
the remaining time left before opening. 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”.
Caroline Sheen will play the role until Louise Redknapp returns. Any patrons
who would like to exchange their tickets to a performance when Louise has
returned to the show should contact their point of sale."
