A new production of ‘9 to 5: The Musical’ presented by Dolly Parton, coming to the Savoy Theatre in 2019. Based on the 20th Century Fox Picture of the same name.

The contract includes a commitment for an 11-week UK tour (Autumn 2019).

Roles
- TINSWORTHY / Ensemble (U/S “Hart” and “Dick”) (Male, 30 - 40)
Description: STRONG MUSICAL THEATRE ACTOR AND SINGER **with strong movement ability** required to understudy lead roles and play a nice little cameo role of "Tinsworthy" and appear in the Ensemble.

“TINSWORTHY”: This is a small cameo role. The CEO. A real character, an adventurer, still virile (despite no longer being a young buck), knows his own mind.
INCLUDES UNDERSTUDY DUTIES:
- 1st Understudy “Hart”: The Boss. Smarmy, pompous, his own biggest fan. Simply put, he’s the quintessential sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot. VERY strong comic skills required.
- 1st Understudy “Dick”: Judy’s Ex-Husband who has left her for his much younger secretary. Basically, a jerk.
