Working girls on stage

Have your say

SUNDERLAND Empire is gearing up to host some of Dolly Parton’s biggest hits.

Based on the country legend’s music, 9 to 5 the musical, will run at the venue from October 29 to November 3.

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 Ben Richards as Franklin Hart .

Based on the hit movie, it centres on three office workers who turn the tables on their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot of a boss.

They conspire to take control of the company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do.

Tickets are priced £15 to £33.50. Call 0844 871 3022 or go to
