LOUISE REDKNAPP GETS BACK TO BUSINESS AS SHE REPRISES HER ROLE AS VIOLET NEWSTEAD IN THE FORTHCOMING UK TOUR OF DOLLY PARTON’S SMASH HIT 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL
Fresh from dazzling in the West End run of the show, Louise Redknapp will reprise her role as ‘Violet Newstead’ in the forthcoming UK tour of Dolly Parton’s smash-hit 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL. Leading the way as one of the first full scale musicals to tour the UK in 2021, Louise will appear in the show from Tuesday 9 – Saturday 13 November at the Sunderland Empire.
Louise Redknapp played the role of ‘Violet Newstead’ to rave reviews from audiences and critics alike when 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL opened in the West End at the Savoy Theatre in 2019. Louise’s other theatre credits include ‘Sally Bowles’ in the national tour of “Cabaret”. In 2016 she reached the final of “Strictly Come Dancing”. As a musician Louise has sold millions of records. She was a member of the band Eternal before embarking on a highly successful solo career, with her first live shows in 15 years selling out all over the UK.
Dolly Parton said today “I am so proud that 9 to 5 will be coming back soon to theatres all across the UK. Louise has been wonderful since she led the show in the West End and we’re all so excited to give audiences the best night out after we have all waited so long!”.
9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL features a book by Patricia Resnick, the legendary film’s original screenwriter, and an original Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score by country legend and pop icon Dolly Parton. It tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the girls manage to reform their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit? Inspired by the cult film this hilarious new West End production is about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business!
9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL is written by Patricia Resnick, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton. It is directed by Jeff Calhoun, choreography by Lisa Stevens, design by Tom Rogers, lighting design by Howard Hudson, musical supervision, arrangements and orchestrations by Mark Crossland, musical direction by Andrew Hilton and casting by Victoria Roe.
