9 to 5: The Musical tells the outrageously funny story of three female office workers who turn the tables on their sexist boss. When his abusive behavior becomes too much for them, these women take matters into their own hands, kidnapping him and running the office themselves. As they take charge, they find out there's nothing they can't do ... even in a man's world. This crowd-pleasing musical comedy -- based on the 1980 film starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton -- features music and lyrics by Parton and a book by Patricia Resnick, who also wrote the film. Parton's score was nominated for a Tony, and the titular theme song won two Grammys. Learn More

My husband and I drove in to Fountain Hills from Mesa to see The Pirates of Penzance 5/25/2013. The Mainstage auditorium accommodates well over 100 guests. The first 3 rows are flat; we sat in the 3rd row. You aren't given where you will sit until you pick up your tickets at Will Call. All padded seats in the house seemed to be good; probably tight, though, for a larger person. The theatre was cooled to a comfortable temperature. The local actors were excellent as was the sound system. The cast used the entire auditorium for their performance on occasion. There was one "backdrop" change at intermission. They sell drinks (including wine) and cookies, but no food allowed in the theatre.
A day at the beach for the daughters of a modern Major General provides Frederic and his pirate mates with a chance encounter and a first-rate opportunity to marry with impunity. Then duty, filial and otherwise, threatens to scuttle everything. Can catastrophe be averted? Will love prevail? Of course, but not before Gilbert and Sullivan fire a few broadsides at social stuffiness in this rollicking operetta that abounds in music, comical paradox and delicious silliness delivered with wit as sharp as corsair's cutlass.
