Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company) is pleased and excited to open their 16th season with the hit musical comedy “9 to 5 The Musical” with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick. “9 to 5 The Musical” will open on Friday, July 6th with a funky fundraising fete. Performances will continue through Saturday, August 4th.
“9 to 5 The Musical” is directed by Kim Mytelka with choreography by Jennifer Daugherty and musical direction by Sean Ramos. The production team also includes Nancy Dougherty (costume design), Lisa Miller (light design), Tom Boone (scenic design), David Cooley (stage manager), and Kristin Bingley (asst. stage manager).
Based on the 1980 hit musical of the same name, “9 to 5 The Musical” follows three unlikely friends (portrayed by Lisa Asby as Doralee, Katie Harrison as Judy, and Jennifer H. Salcich as Violet) as they take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can’t do – even in a ‘man’s world.’ Filled with Dolly Parton’s signature songs and overflowing with laughs, “9 to 5 The Musical” is about women breaking stereotypes and glass ceilings. This hysterical story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought provoking, a little romantic, and family friendly.
Other members of this incredibly talented cast include Manny Berry, Calvin Brown, Terri Burchfield, Brandon Del Castillo, Hayley Dougherty, Kelsey Perkins, Robin Schaefer, Shonee Singer, Ryan Van Dewalli, Whitney Williams, and Kyle Wright.
All performances will be at Island ETC, 2317 Mechanic, Downtown Galveston. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8pm. There are two Sunday matinees on July 15th and July 22nd at 2:30pm. Tickets for the grand opening night, Friday, July 6th are $60 each. This includes delicious treats donated by popular Galveston restaurants. Tickets for all other performances are $30 (adults) and $25 (students and seniors).
