Based on the 20th Century Fox Movie of the same title. Pushed to the boiling point by their boss, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. They conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do-even in a man’s world. Set in the late 1970’s, 9 to 5 is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the rolodex era.
- VIOLET – 40s to early 50s. Attractive, strong, ambitious woman. Stands up for what she believes in. Head secretary and Mr. Hart’s administrative assistant. She is also a single mother of a teenager. (Lily Tomlin in film)
- DORALEE – late 20s- 30s. Sexy in a wholesome country singer way. Character should “suggest” Dolly Parton-like character but not necessarily an impersonator. Needs to sing country.
- JUDY – early 30s. Attractive, insecure, at first afraid of being on her own but later becomes empowered and strong. She is the “new” girl. Husband just left her for his secretary. (Jane Fonda in the film)
- ROZ KEITH – late 30s – early 40s. The office kiss-up and second to the boss, a gossip, has an unrequited love for her boss and will do anything to win his approval.
- FRANKLIN HART – late 40s to early 50s. Arrogant, self-absorbed, male chauvinist corporate 70s boss. Is capable of a surface, smarmy charm. (Dabney Coleman in the film)
Supporting Roles: (Some might come from the ensemble/Dance ensemble)
- MISSY – late 40s to early 50s. Hart’s wife. Fluttery and ditzy.
- JOE – late 20s to early 30s. The cute, young, office accountant. He’s smitten with VIOLET.
- DICK – late 30s to mid 40s. Judy’s soon-to-be ex-husband. Average middle-aged guy, sporting a little less hair and a little more paunch than he did ten years ago.
- DWAYNE – late 20s to early 30s. Doralee’s husband, very supportive of Doralee.
- JOSH – Violet’s teenage son.
- MARGARET – any age. Secretary. The office lush.
- DANCE ENSEMBLE: (Dancer Dudes & Chicks, –6 of each M & W). 18-30’s. This group has the most fun of the whole cast! They will play a variety of characters and be involved in all of the big numbers. Must be able to sing and be able to move/dance well.
- ENSEMBLE (singers max of 5 of each M & W) – must play/look 18 to 60. “Some” movement/dance required.
