Lincoln County Community Theater (LCCT), the resident theater company of Damariscotta’s Lincoln Theater is knee-deep in preparation for this year’s winter musical.  This time, the company will present Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5 the Musical,” opening Friday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m. for a four performance weekend.

“9 to 5, the Musical” is based on the hit movie about three office workers who plan to get even with their egotistical, lying and hypocritical boss. When their plan spins wildly out of control the situation becomes hilarious and the laughter is non-stop. The show features the blockbuster title song plus a jubilant score by multiple Grammy Award winner Dolly Parton that mixes Broadway and pop with Dolly's irresistible style. This sharp witty musical adventure is perfect for anyone who ever wanted to string up their boss.

The hit 1980 film, which starred Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, is the 20th highest grossing comedy film of all time and has been named to the American Film Institute’s list of “100 Funniest Movies.” Dolly Parton’s title song, “9 to 5,” received two Grammy Awards, an Academy Award nomination and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Artists of America. The musical opened on Broadway in 2009 and was nominated for four Tony Awards, including Best Score and a record-breaking 15 Drama Desk Awards. The book is written by the film’s original screenwriter, Patricia Resnick, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton. The original Broadway cast recording received a Grammy nomination. Since its Broadway run, “9 to 5, the Musical” has toured internationally.  It now comes to the Lincoln Theater stage.

The show, generously sponsored by HM Payson, and with music direction by John Mulcahy, features a cast of numerous local favorites including: Victoria Hamilton (Violet Newstead), Kristen Robinson (Dorelee Rhodes), Emily Mirabile (Judy Bernley), Jesse Wakeman (Franklin Hart Jr.), Christina Belknapp (Roz Keith), Joe Lugosch (Joe/Dwayne), John Henry Eddyblouin (Josh), Eve Jamieson (Missy), Bridget Alexander (Maria), Desmond O’Brien (Dick), Natalie Norris (Kathy), Zora Alexander (Margaret), Desmond O’Brien (Bob Enright/Doctor), Andy Barber (Tinsworthy/Detective), Laurie Brown (Candy Striper), and Kyrill Schabert (Cop), all of whom are supported by a chorale of 27, The Double-D Singers, and orchestra of 12, The Push-up Pops.
