'9 to 5: The Musical' opens at Huntington Playhouse

The 2013 Huntington Playhouse Season continues with “9 To 5: The Musical” opening on July 11 and playing through August 4. Featuring a cast of 20 performers, the show is directed by Managing Director Tom Meyrose.

Pushed to the boiling point, 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 1970s and based on the hit 1980 movie, "9 to 5: The Musical" is the hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era set to the music and lyrics of Dolly Parton.

Performances are on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. with one Sunday matinee on August 4 at 2 p.m. There will be no show on Saturday, August 3, at the request of the Cleveland Metroparks because of a planned beach event. Reservations are strongly recommended for other performances.

Flex Passes are still available to the public. Flex Passes are good for up to six admissions in any combination for any Friday and Saturday evening performances, or the Sunday matinees during the 2013 season. Cost is $102.

The theatre is also looking for those interested in volunteering for backstage work, ushering, fundraising or box office help. If interested please contact the box office.

Huntington Playhouse box office hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from 1-5 p.m. and is open evenings during performances until 9 p.m. For reservations, call 440-871-8333.

“9 To 5- The Musical” is sponsored by the Westlake Village Retirement Community. Huntington Playhouse is located at 28601 Lake Road in Bay Village and is an affiliate of the Cleveland Metroparks.
