They are showing the boss who’s boss!

Lancer Productions, the Theatre Department at North Scott High School will be presenting 9 to 5: The Musical for its fall production. Show times will be October 26, 27, and November 3 at 7 pm, and October 8 and November 4 at 2 pm. Performances will be in the North Scott High School Auditorium in Eldridge, Iowa.

Pushed to the boiling point by their boss, three female co-workers, Violet, Doralee and Judy put together a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigoted boss Frank Hart. Set in the late 1970s, 9 TO 5: The Musical is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge. Based on the 1980 hit movie produced by 20th Century Fox Pictures starring Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, and Dabney Coleman, this musical will keep audiences laughing, tapping their toes, and reminiscing about the days before email, faxes, and political correctness.

9 TO 5: The Musical features music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick. The director is Joanie Demmer-Freeman, vocal director Sue Becker, choreographer Connie Bracey, technical directors and house managers Tom Goodall and Steve Parmley, costumes Margo Stites, accompanist Terri Wittkowski, and orchestra director Alan Guss.

Tickets are available at the door and are $10 for adults and $6 for students and Senior Citizens. Members of Plus 60 and other seniors are invited to join Lancer Productions before the Sunday, October 28 and November 4 matinees for buy one get one free tickets and to meet in the lobby for coffee and dessert and the chance to sign up for door prizes.
