Liberty Center Association of the Arts Holding Auditions for ’9 TO 5 The Musical’ [INTERVIEW]
The Liberty Center Association of the Arts is planning on some fun this week. They’re going to have a huge musical production coming up next year, and you can get involved!
Do you work 9 to 5? Well even if you don’t, they’ve got a fun show coming this spring. ’9 to 5 The Musical’ will be showing on March 6-9 and 13-16, 2014. There’s no better way to chase away the wintertime blues than by being in a show. Auditions for the show will be held at the Liberty Center on Tuesday, Dec. 3 and Wednesday, Dec. 4 beginning at 6:30 p.m. They will be casting men and women aged 20-50 and a young man aged 15-18. Please come prepared to sing.
Pushed to the boiling point by their boss, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. They conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do — even in a man’s world. Set in the late 1970s, ’9 TO 5: The Musical’ is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic, ’9 TO 5: The Musical’ is about teaming up and taking care of business.
I got to talk with two of the people involved with the show, director Ben Jackson (who you might remember onstage with the LCAA’s The Full Monty) and Terri Ballard.
Music and lyrics written by Dolly Parton and the book by Patricia Resnick is based on the 1980 hit movie ‘Nine to Five.’ Remember, auditions for the show will be held at the Liberty Center on Tuesday, Dec. 3 and Wednesday, Dec. 4 beginning at 6:30 p.m. Don’t miss out!
