Gesa Power House Theatre launches the new Walla Walla Summer Stage Series with two musicals scheduled for Summer 2018. The second show of the series is 9 to 5: The Musical, with performances on August 17 to 26. This production is directed by former New York director and Walla Walla native Tyson Kaup (Last 5 Years, Cabaret).
9 to 5 features music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and is based on the 1980 hit movie of the same name. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.
Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?
Auditions for the Walla Walla Summer Stage will be held in March.
