The Annapolis Summer Garden Theater will present 9 to 5 The Musical during August and the first weekend of September 2018. Tommy Malek will direct and choreograph this hit show with the Musical Direction of Rachel Sandler. Malek’s directing credits include Cry Baby The Musical, Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein, Hairspray, Into the Woods and Little Shop of Horrors.
Based on the hit 1980 movie of the same title, 9 to 5: The Musical has music and lyrics written by Dolly Parton. The show also features a book written by Patricia Resnick that is based on the film’s screenplay, co-written by Resnick and Colin Higgins.
After debuting in September 2008 in Los Angeles, the musical opened in April 2009 on Broadway. An immediate smash, it won 15 Drama Desk Award nominations, the record for a production in one year. The show also garnered four Tony Award nominations.
Harassed and bullied until they’re fed up, three women plot revenge on their lying, egomaniacal, sexist, and bigoted boss, Hart. An amusing and surprising comedic twist results in Doralee, Judy, and Violet being granted their wish, and they show Hart the door. The trio proceeds to remake their workplace, capturing control of the company that had long suppressed their ambitions.
The Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016. Over the past five decades, this theatrical showcase became one Annapolis’ most cherished summer traditions.
Located downtown, the perfect prelude to an ASGT musical is dinner at one of the city’s many fine restaurants nearby, followed by a pleasant walk during a warm summer night.
The theatre offers intimate outdoor seating with a view of the moon and stars above. An enjoyable performance and a leisurely stroll back to their accommodations will complete a romantic evening for couples visiting Annapolis.
Performances are scheduled from Thursday to Sunday at 8:30 p.m., August 2 to September 2, 2018. The musical is rated PG-13.
