Stumble out of bed for 9 to 5 in High Point

Set in the male-dominated 1980’s workplace, audiences will be rooting for Violet, Doralee, and Judy as they face off against their sexist, egotistical, oppressive boss. Witty dialogue, powerful songs, and hilarious scenes make 9 to 5 an instant classic. Music from Grammy Award winner Dolly Parton shines bright, and will have you humming along and dancing in your seats.  Tickets are still available here.
