9 to 5 the Musical Media Call, State Theatre, 14th July 2022 by Mary Boukouvalas

After wildly successful seasons in Sydney and Brisbane, Dolly Parton’s smash-hit West End musical, 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL, has arrived in Melbourne. Internationally acclaimed and loved by audiences and critics alike, 9 TO 5 plays at the State Theatre, Arts Centre Melbourne until 18 September.

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, Sarah Krndija, 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 Melbourne,” 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!”
