The Granbury Theatre Company (GTC) will continue its Broadway on the Brazos season with “9 to 5” Sept. 22 to Oct. 15, 2023, at the historic Granbury Opera House in Downtown Granbury.
According to Music Theatre International, “Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee 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?” Credits include music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick. The musical is based on the 1980 film starring Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and Parton.
