Dolly Parton has announced that the musical version of the popular 9 To 5 film is heading to Melbourne this July.

The announcement follows strong tickets sales for the debut Australian leg in Sydney, which starts in April and her post-death release plan! 

“I am beyond excited to be bringing this show to Melbourne after it’s Sydney premiere,” says Dolly Parton.

“The response from the West End to 9 T0 5 The Musical has been incredible. I can’t wait for more people throughout Australia to have a toe tappin’ good time to the songs they love in a story they know.”

9 To 5 The Musical tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy, three workmates pushed to boiling point by their egotistical, sexist boss Franklin Hart Jnr.

Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the ladies manage to reform their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?

The musical features Caroline O’Connor, Marina Prior, Samantha Dodemaide and Erin Clare.

Parton wrote the musical score which of course includes her much-loved hit song, ‘9 to 5.’
