Classic show

THE Port Sunlight Players’ production of 9 to 5 The Musical is on later this month.

Staged at the Gladstone Theatre in Port Sunlight from November 30 to December 2, it is about three unlikely friends who take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can’t do, even in a man’s world.

Featuring music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, it is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Pushed to the boiling point, the three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss.

Tickets are from the Gladstone Theatre box office
