“This Saturday Searcy County will have a musical! The Conway Dinner Theater & The Greater Searcy County Chamber of Commerce presents 9 to 5 The Musical Saturday, July 27th at the Ozark Heritage Arts Center in Leslie. Why not spend the whole day in our beautiful county shopping and enjoying the sights. Get some lodging and spend the night too! All profits go to nonprofit organizations.
Watch as Violet Newstead, the super-efficient office manager, joins her fellow co-workers – frazzled divorcée Judy Bernly and secretary Doralee Rhodes – to turn the tables on their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot” of a boss, Franklin Hart Jr. In a hilarious turn of events, our three stars 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?
9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL features a score by seven-time Grammy Award® winner DOLLY PARTON that includes the blockbuster title song, plus a book by original screenwriter PATRICIA RESNICK. The musical premiered in Los Angeles in September 2008, and opened on Broadway in April 2009. It received 15 Drama Desk Award nominations, the most received by a production in a single year, as well as 4 Tony Awards nominations.”
