(a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era)

The Arts Center of Cannon County is excited to announce the opening of the Tony and Grammy-nominated show “9 to 5: The Musical” featuring music and lyrics by Dolly Parton. Based on the sensational musical version of the popular 1980 hit movie of the same name, this show is full of laughter and side-splitting Southern sass. Join us for this outrageous story of three unlikely friends who concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. 

9 to 5 is directed by Dr. Darryl Deason with music direction by Robert Hiers and choreography by Lauren Johnson. This show features Arts Center favorite Mary Ellen Smith as Doralee, Annie Clements as Violet and Kerri Kairdolf as Judy. This talented cast also includes Mark Thomas, Allison Barnett, John C. Taylor, Quinton Parnell, Zack Kelby, Julie Wilcox, Melissa Stanley, Noel Clements, Laurie Burger, Susan Higdon, David Campbell, Jonathan Higdon, Lauren Johnson, Erica Adcock, Candi Ford, Matthew Pyles, Jacob Goza and Brad McCrary.
