Cresson Lake Playhouse is pleased to announce Dolly Parton's 9 TO 5: The Musical is scheduled to open Thursday May 22. This outrageous musical comedy is based on the 1980 movie and features Dolly Parton's original hit title song along with her Tony Award and Grammy nominated score. 9 TO 5: The Musical is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Featuring a book by Patricia Resnick (co-writer of the original screenplay), 9 TO 5 :The Musical tells the story of three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there's nothing they can't do - even in a man's world.
