The outrageously entertaining and always timely 9 to 5: The Musical follows the hilarious adventures of a trio of female office workers who turn the tables on their sexist boss. When his abusive behavior becomes too much for them, the three 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 hit 1980 film starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton -- boasts 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 and was nominated for an Oscar. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“Enough cannot be said about Matthew Park’s musical direction, which is sensitive and, at times, heart-wrenchingly beautiful.” — Cary Ginell, Simi Valley Acorn
“The entire cast … is the congregate star of the show, so tightly integrated in song, movement and emotion that it gives the simple plot an artful boost.” — Rita Moran, Ventura County Star
It’s Germany, 1891. The beautiful young Wendla explores her body and asks her mother where babies come from. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior defends his buddy Moritz — a boy so traumatized by puberty he can’t concentrate on anything. One afternoon in the woods, Wendla and Melchior discover a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. Spring Awakening explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children. Spring Awakening celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget._
