Alarm clocks rattle as secretaries Doralee, Violet, and just-hired Judy tumble out of bed for another wild workday at Consolidated Industries. Under the hellish rule of Executive Franklin Hart, Jr., Judy has an awful first day, Violet is passed over for promotion, and Doralee discovers that Hart is telling everyone they’re having an affair. After a series of 9 to 5 days jampacked with injustices (and an accidental act of retribution), these three unlikely friends team up to terminate their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot of a boss, once and for all. Based on the 1980s movie of the same name, the hair is big, and tensions are high as this revenge musical comedy imagines the possibilities of a fair and inclusive workplace where empowered and impassioned people can climb to the top of the corporate ladder.

Music Director – MATTHEW W. SURICO
Violet: The company’s ‘veteran’ and Head Secretary. Violet is Mr. Hart’s Administrative Assistant. She is a single mother who is strong and ambitious.
Doralee: A spitfire who works in Mr. Hart’s office. Doralee is often underestimated because of her good looks, but proof that you can’t judge a book by its cover.
Judy: Is the company’s ‘newbie’. After her husband’s affair, she gets a job in hopes of finding empowerment and stability. She is insecure, yet smart, determined, and hopeful.
Franklin Hart: A notorious chauvinist and egotistical lech. He is an executive at Consolidated Industries who is capable of faking charm, but usually shows his true colors as an arrogant, self-absorbed boss.
Roz Keith: The office gossip and Mr. Hart’s spy. She has an unrequited love for Mr. Hart and will go to any length she can to win his approval.
Joe: An earnest and hardworking office accountant. He is kind, enthusiastic, and absolutely smitten with Violet.
Dwayne: Doralee’s supportive and loving husband.
Josh: Violet’s quirky teenage son.
Missy: Franklin Hart’s wife. She turns a blind eye to her husband’s lecherous nature.
Maria: A dynamic and vibrant secretary in Hart’s office.
Dick: Judy’s soon-to-be ex-husband. He is having a midlife crisis and his marriage to Judy is the collateral damage.
Kathy: A secretary in Hart’s office who likes to gossip.
Margaret: A secretary in Hart’s office who likes a drink or two (or three).
Tinsworthy: Franklin Hart’s boss and Chairman of the Board. An honest person who may be wiser to Hart’s ways than he lets on.
Ensemble: Office employees, police officers, hospital employees, all strong dancers and singers.
