9 To 5: The Musical has announced a second UK tour to start in 2019.
With a score written by country music icon Dolly Parton, 9 To 5 The Musical is based on the 1980s comedy movie of the same name, which Dolly starred in.
The Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score features some of Parton’s biggest hits, including the legendary ‘9 to 5’, as well as original songs written for the show.
The musical first premiered in Los Angeles in 2008 before moving to Broadway in 2009 with a cast including Stephanie J. Block, Megan Hilty, Allison Janney and Andy Karl.
A first UK tour took place in 2012 and 2013 before the show made its debut in the West End at the start of this year (January 2019).
Currently playing at the Savoy Theatre through until 31 August 2019, 9 to 5 The Musical will head out on tour across the UK from September.
Parton said of the tour news: “I am beyond thrilled to the response from across the pond to 9 to 5 the Musical.
“The overwhelmingly positive fan reaction to this universal story tickles every rhinestone on my body. I can’t wait for more people throughout the UK and Ireland to enjoy it and sing along.”
