Theatre group getting ready for their next show - 9 to 5
BOS Musical Theatre Company is to present their latest show 9 to 5, which will be staged at The Little Theatre, Hoghton Street, Southport, from Saturday, October 7 - 14 .
Based on the hit film of the same name, this musical is full of boot stomping Dolly Parton hits!
9 to 5 tells the story of three women who learn that there’s nothing they can’t do, even in a man’s world!
Violet (Heather Lewis), Judy (Hannah Johnson) and Dora Lee (Lauren Millar) have had enough of Franklyn Hart Jnr (Dom Tolley), the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot that they call a boss.
They concoct a plan to get even and give their boss and his assistant Roz (Michelle Hopwood) the boot.
While he is ‘otherwise engaged’ they live out their wildest dreams, giving their workplace a makeover and taking control of the company that had always kept them down. 9 to 5 features new music from super star country singer Dolly Parton. A spokesperson for BOS commented: “As well as the classic title song, this musical displays the true fight of feminism in a world overpowered by men.”
The cast and ensemble consist of members new and old. Heather Lewis (Violet) is an experienced stalwart of BOSMTC and has performed many lead roles over her 20 years with the company.
Lauren and Dom have been members for two years and have performed several principle roles. Dom plays the part of Franklyn Hart Jnr; who, in the show, tries every trick in the book to persuade Dora Lee to “accept his advances”.
Hannah and Michelle joined the company more recently and will be performing their first principle roles for BOS MTC.
Hannah said: “I’ve been involved with BOSMTC for just over two years taking part in Oliver and The Wizard of Oz, both as a chorus member, but 9 to 5 is my first ever principle role which I’m really excited about.
“I have always loved Musical Theatre, but there aren’t that many groups in Bootle to get involved with. I then went to watch a BOS MTC production of Hairspray and I was hooked.
“I really wanted to be a part of it, even though it meant travelling from Bootle to Southport several times a week, it’s been worth it!
“In 9 to 5, I will be playing the part of Judy Burnly. This is a really challenging role but I get to sing some amazing songs and have some really funny lines. I am also really enjoying working alongside the other principle actors as well as our brilliant chorus.
“Every cast member has worked so hard and we have an amazing production team who are making sure that we put on a fantastic show.”
