There’s a new member of the 9 To 5 The Musical who’s going to be pouring herself a cup of ambition from 2 September.
Chelsea Halfpenny (Casualty, Emmerdale) will be making her West End debut playing the role of Judy Bernly. Chelsea will first perform this role between 27 – 29 August, and will then take on the role full time from Tuesday 2 September.
Chelsea is taking over the role from Amber Davies, who’s off to take part in the show’s UK tour. Amber’s final performance in the West End will be on Friday 30 and Saturday 31 August.
Bonnie Langford, Brian Conley, Caroline Sheen and Natalie McQueen will extend their runs as Roz, Keith, Franklin Hart Jnr, Violet Newstead and Doralee Rhodes. Bonnie, Caroline and Natalie will all appear in the show until 11 January 2020 and Brian will appear in the show until 30 November 2019.

Featuring a toe-tapping score by the queen of country Dolly Parton, 9 To 5 The Musical 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 women 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!
