9 to 5 musical: On-the-job playing

Production opens Wednesday at Wagon Wheel Theatre.


— WARSAW — Bad bosses, beware.

“9 to 5: The Musical” opens Wednesday at Wagon Wheel Theatre in Warsaw. The musical is based on the hit film starring Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda.

Nearly 30 years after the film ended its successful run, “9 to 5: The Musical” made its Broadway debut garnering 15 Drama Desk Award Nominations and four Tony Award Nominations.

Libby Schneider, who portrays Doralee Rhodes (Parton in the film version) said she believes women and men will love the show and find their characters endearing.

“It’s really interesting to see how these three different women relate to this crazy, egotistical boss.  I think “9 to 5: The Musical” is a great underdog/Cinderella story and something I love about Doralee is that she doesn’t take any crud from anybody, and she just who she is no matter what”


“9 to 5: The Musical” runs through June 29 at the Wagon Wheel Theatre.  Tickets for tickets range from $16 to $34.  Discounts are available for college students and on designated performances for senior citizens.  For more information visit wagonwheeltheatre.org or call 574-267-8041.

The theater is located at 2517 E. Center St., Warsaw.
