Natalie Casey, Bonnie Langford, Mark Moraghan to star in 9 To 5: The Musical in Torquay and Bristol

Natalie Casey, Bonnie Langford, and Mark Moraghan will star in the hilarious new musical 9 To 5 at Princess Theatre Torquay, Hall for Cornwall Truro, and Bristol Hippodrome.

9 To 5: The Musical is a hilarious new show, based on the hit movie and centring on three office workers who turn the tables on their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot of a boss.

The show features Dolly Parton’s original hit title song, 9 To 5, which won her an Oscar nomination, alongside 18 original Dolly tunes, including Backwoods Barbie, Shine Like the Sun, Get Out and Stay Out and Let Love Grow.

The show will star Natalie Casey as Judy Bernly, Jackie Clune as Violet Newstead, Bonnie Langford as Roz Keith, Amy Lennox as Doralee Rhodes and Mark Moraghan as Franklin Hart.

Natalie Casey is probably best known as Donna in nine series of Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps.

Her theatre credits include Oklahoma! at Chichester Festival Theatre and Legally Blonde in the West End.

She is currently appearing as Ange in Abigail’s Party, also in the West End.

Bonnie Langford’s many theatre credits include Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway, US tour and in the West End.

Her other West End credits include Charity in Sweet Charity and the original cast of Cats.

She recently played the Lady of the Lake in Spamalot on tour, a role she will be reprising in the West End next month.

In 2006 she reached the final of ITV1’s Dancing on Ice.

Mark Moraghan appeared as Owen Davis in Holby City for five years, as Ray Wyatt in Dream Team for three years and as Greg Shadwick in Brookside for two years. He was also a finalist on Celebrity Masterchef.

His West End theatre credits include Priscilla Queen Of The Desert at the Palace Theatre.

Jackie Clune’s West End credits include the leading role of Mrs Wilkinson in Billy Elliot and Donna in the international tour of Mamma Mia!

Amy Lennox recently played the role of Elle Woods in the UK tour of Legally Blonde. Her West End credits include Liesl in The Sound of Music at the London Palladium.

Dolly Parton said: “I am so excited that 9 To 5: The Musical is coming to the UK. I’m hoping you have as much fun watching it as I had writing the music for it.

9 To 5: The Musical is perfect for anyone that’s ever wanted to string up their boss, which is almost all of us. So come join the fun!”

9 To 5: The Musical is at Princess Theatre Torquay from February 18 to 23, 2013, Hall for Cornwall Truro from March 11 to 16, 2013, and Bristol Hippodrome from March 18 to 23, 2013. Tickets are on sale now.
