It’s definitely not a good day for Franklin Hart Jnr, the pompous boss of Consolidated Industries.

He’s in deep trouble from the rope-carrying Doralee Rhodes and the gun-toting Violet Newstead ... and even the love-lorn Roz Keith has her doubts.

This is a scene from Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5 The Musical” being staged by King’s Lynn Operatic and Dramatic Society which opens at Lynn Arts Centre on Wednesday.

Based on the 1980 film of the same name – and who can forget Dolly Parton’s hit record “9 to 5”– this hilarious musical comedy centres on three office workers who turn the tables on their sexist boss.

Doralee (originally played by Dolly Parton), Violet and Judy Bernley are the trio pushed to boiling point in the offices of Consolidated Industries and they dream about giving Franklin the boot, but Roz will do anything to win his approval.

This is a high-energy show from start to finish with ensemble songs, dance routines, laughter and love all mixed in.

KLODS, as reported last week, scooped three NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) 2015 awards for their Sister Act and Vicar of Dibley productions, and are hoping this new show will pick up more honours.

“9 to 5 The Musical”, supported by the Lynn News, is staged nightly at the Arts Centre, from Wednesday through to Saturday, April 23, at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £13 and are available from the Corn Exchange box office on 01553 764864 or on the night from the Arts Centre box office.
