Opening Friday, May 8 –
Theatre Tulsa’s performance of 9 to 5: The Musical will have your belly aching from laughter and your toes tapping to its great tunes as its three stars, Violet, played by Kelly McEver; Judy, played by Kelsey Kemper; and Doralee; played by Karleena Riggs, take control of their careers when pushed to the limit by their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical” boss. Following the storyline of the 1980 hit movie, written by Patricia Resnick and starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton, 9 to 5: The Musical takes the drama and comedy to the stage. Enjoy music and lyrics by the talented Dolly Parton, who met the terrible Hart first hand as Doralee in the 1980 movie. See the Tulsa Performing Arts Center’s stage go from a man’s world to a women’s workplace with the makeover these fiery women give it. See the show Friday, May 8, through Sunday, May 10, and Thursday, May 14, through Sunday, May 17. Tickets are $28. For more information, visit www.tulsapac.com.
