Washburn Rural High School Theatre Presents 9 to 5

Based on the 1980 hit movie, this hilarious story with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton is workplace revolution at its best!

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. Little do they realize how their choices will change their office - and their own lives - forever.

February 9-11 at 7:00 PM
February 12 at 2:00 PM

Tickets: Reserved seating $7-$9 online https://warutheatre.org/winter-musical or at the door

*This musical contains adult language and themes, and is recommended for mature audiences.
