Acting Out (Taylor, MI) Presents 9 to 5, the musical


Acting Out Productions Presents  9 To 5:  The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. 

This entertaining show is being Directed by Kelly R. Lomas of Trenton, Assistant Directed by Mary Jo Hunt of Riverview, Vocal Directed by Sarah Leonard of Allen Park, and Choreographed by Rian McDonald of  Southgate.  The show features April Denny of Dearborn Heights as “Doralee Rhodes,” Melissa Brown Knox of Lincoln Park as “Judy Bernly,” Liza Boos of Allen Park as “Violet Newstead,” and John Sartor of Canton as “Franklin Hart, Jr.”

This will also be the debut of a live orchestra during a show for AOP.

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 co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Doralee, Judy and Violet 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?

Show dates and times are as follows:  April 22, 23, 29, and 30 at 7:30 pm and April 24 at 3:00 pm at the Royal Majestic Theatre inside Trillium Academy, 15740 Racho Road in Taylor.  Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students ages 13-18 with valid school ID.  Friends and Family online deal $10 per person at
