On December 8-10, Suffield Academy will be performing 9 to 5: The Musical in the Jeanice Seaverns Performing Arts Center. The music and lyrics are by Dolly Parton, based on the book by Patricia Resnick.
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 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?
Director of Performing Arts Tom Dugan said, “The students involved in this production have been working incredibly hard to bring 9 to 5 to the Suffield stage. I am mostly impressed with their work ethic—finding the balance between academics, athletics, and the arts. It’s one of the most impressive aspects of Suffield. The show is fantastic and will have the audience toe tapping in their seats throughout the night!”
