Three office workers turn the tables on their sexist and hypocritical boss in 9 to 5 The Musical, which comes to the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, from April 29 until May 3.

Based on the hit movie starring Dolly Parton, the production is currently in the middle of a UK national tour.

Starring is Bonnie Langford as Roz Keith, Natalie Casey as Judy Bernly, Jackie Clune as Violet Newstead and Amy Lennox plays the Dolly Parton character from the film, Doralee Rhodes.

Bonnie Langford has previously played Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway and was an original member of the cast of Cats.

She recently played the Lady of the Lake in Spamalot on tour, a role she will be reprising in the West End next month.

Natalie Casey is best known for playing Donna in nine series of Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps, and has been to the area before in Oklahoma! at Chichester Festival Theatre.

Jackie Clune has starred in Billy Elliot in the West End and Mamma Mia! on the international tour, while Amy Lennox recently played Elle Woods in the UK tour of Legally Blonde.

Joining them will be Mark Moraghan, who appeared as Owen David in Holby City for five years, and Ben Richards as Franklyn Hart, who played PC Nate Roberts in The Bill.

With an estimated 100 million album sales, the songwriter and film star, Dolly Parton, is behind the music and lyrics of the musical. A multi-Grammy Award winner, she’s worked on more than 3,000 songs and has made it into the Songwriters’ Hall Of Fame.

She even penned the global chart topper I Will Always Love You, as sung by Whitney Houston.

Dolly Parton says: ‘I am so excited that 9 to 5 The Musical is coming to Southampton. I’m hoping people have as much fun watching it as I had writing the music for it.’
