Watch 9 to 5 The Musical trailer for West End and UK tour

A new trailer of 9 to 5 The Musical has landed ahead of its UK tour, which begins in September.

With a score written by country music icon Dolly Parton, 9 To 5 The Musical is based on the 1980s comedy movie of the same name, which Dolly starred in.

It tells the story of workmates Doralee, Violet and Judy who push back against sexist supervisor Franklin Hart. The Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score features some of Parton’s biggest hits, including the legendary ‘9 to 5’, as well as original songs written for the show.

As well as its current West End production, the show will be touring the UK this autumn.
