The SSCC Theatre will present “9 to 5: The Musical,” playing July 26-28 in the Edward K. Daniels Auditorium on the Southern State Community College Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro. The Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m.; the Sunday matinee begins at 3:30 p.m.
Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee (played by Jenna Horick, Faith Fetters and Madison Hatfield) live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot. While Hart (Kevin Evans) remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. With music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and a book by Patricia Resnick, “9 to 5” takes you “back to 1979 when a gallon of gas ran you about 86¢, shag rugs, pet rocks and disco were the hottest thing around.”
The cast includes: Paula Campagna, Maggie Dobson, Francine Frank, Zanna Haines, Mark Holmes, Emma Horick, Jackson King, Elena Pickering-Polstra, Gideon Pickering-Polstra, Quinn Pickering-Polstra, Zeb Pickering-Polstra, Shane Taylor, Matthew Waits and Sarah Wuellner.
