THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
Based on the iconic 1980 movie, three female coworkers at odds with each other form an unlikely friendship and, through a series of unplanned catastrophes, exact revenge on their vile boss. Resnick’s screenplay was ahead of its time as she defined the working conditions of 1970s women stuck in a proverbial “pink-collar ghetto”. Confined to secretarial and menial mid-level management positions, supervisor Violet, hapless trainee Judy, and the boss’s secretary Doralee pushed to their collective limits, define their own course as they fantasize about getting even with their bane of a boss, the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot Franklin Hart.
When their frustration-fueled fantasies accidentally begin coming true, the trio realizes they have the power in their midst to change everything necessary to improve the horrific work conditions for themselves and their put-upon coworkers. From the instance the curtain rises on Dolly Parton’s classic toe-tapping theme song, sit back and watch these girls–make that women!–charge a new future for working women everywhere, all to a flashy new score of the music you’ve come to expect from Parton.
Join the cast for some wine and hors d’oeuvres, after the show on Friday, May 8th, at the COMPLIMENTARY OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION!
