What's On | Musical Theatre Bringing a Bit of Dolly to Andover | Andover & VillagesAndover Musical Theatre Company are delighted to be bringing ‘9 to 5 The Musical’ to The Lights theatre. Tuesday 14th until Saturday 19th November 2017.

Based on the movie of the same title, 9 to 5, is set in 1979 and 5 tells the story of three determined women, who work for a sexist, egotistical bigot named Franklin Hart. Violet is the office matriarch who keeps getting overlooked for promotion in favour of her male counterparts, everyone judges Doralee on her glamorous good looks and assumes she is sleeping with the boss, and poor little Judy finds herself out to work for the first time in her life after the breakdown of her marriage. The women plot to bring down Hart and through a series of amusing events, and some hilarious consequences, everyone gets what they deserve.

With the music and lyrics penned by Dolly Parton herself, and the script by Patricia Resnick, this modern musical is brilliantly written and has received critical acclaim since its launch on Broadway in 2009, winning several Drama Desk Awards, four Tony’s and a Grammy!

Don’t worry, it’s far from Dolly’s usual country and western style, in fact it is a lively, contemporary show with an upbeat tempo guaranteed to get your toes tapping, and you’ll probably find yourself humming the tunes all the way home.

AMTC are a local amateur musical theatre group and a registered charity. They have previously been praised for the professional quality of their productions and have been nominated for no less than 10 Curtain Call Awards by the Southern Daily Echo.

If you’ve seen one of their shows before then you will know how good they are – from the incredible set to the costumes, wigs and make-up, not to mention the standard of the performances, you’ll be surprised you’re not watching a professional production. The amount of local talent on stage is astounding, and shouldn’t be missed!
