BRISBANE PREMIERE THIS WEEKEND

May 20, 2022

After a wildly successful Australian premiere season in Sydney, Dolly Parton’s smash-hit West End musical, 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL, arrives in Brisbane this Sunday 22 May. Internationally acclaimed and loved by audiences and critics alike, 9 TO 5 plays at QPAC’s Lyric Theatre until 2 July.

An astonishing top line cast has been assembled to inhabit these iconic and much loved roles. Marina Prior plays Violet Newstead, a smart, sassy and efficient woman who has worked all her life at Consolidated Industries. She has all it takes to run the company but there is one small issue … her boss! Casey Donovan is Judy Bernly, a newly separated, never worked before young woman who finds more than just a job at Consolidated Industries. Erin Clare plays Doralee Rhodes, a ‘don’t mess with me’ well-brought-up, bright and beautiful country gal. She may look like a push over but is anything but! Caroline O’Connor is busy-body Roz Keith, the administration assistant who is fiercely – and unrequitedly – in love with her controlling boss, Franklin Hart Jnr. played by Eddie Perfect.

Completing the cast are Lily Baulderstone, Zoe Coppinger, Mia Dabkowski-Chandler, Ben Gillespie, Emma Hawthorne, James Haxby, Emma Johns, Jay Johns, Ethan Jones, Madeleine Mackenzie, Antonia Marr, Josh Mulheran, Tom New, Jake O’Brien, Matthew Prime, Jackson Reedman, Jordan Tomljenovic and Jessica Vellucci.

“I am so excited that 9 TO 5 is finally opening in Brisbane,” said Dolly Parton. “I know the Australian fans will get a real kick out of this musical like people from other parts of the world have!”

Producers John Frost for Crossroads Live Australia, Suzanne Jones and Ambassador Theatre Group Productions said, “We’re thrilled to this hilarious and joyful show from Superstar Dolly Parton to Brisbane. With our incredibly talented cast, led by Marina, Casey, Erin, Caroline and Eddie, audiences are having a fantastic time and loving Dolly’s new songs. Join us for 9 TO 5. It will be the most fun you’ll have all year!
