Putting in extra hours: 9 To 5 extends to 2020

Celebrating what they’re calling 9/5 Day, the producers of 9 To 5 has announced that they’re going into overtime and releasing 300,000 extra tickets which will extend the show’s run into 2020!

The show based on the cult 1980s film and featuring the hit songs of Dolly Parton will now be playing at the Savoy Theatre until April of next year.

It currently stars Louise Redknapp as Violet Newstead, Amber Davies as Judy Bernly, Natalie McQueen as Doralee Rhodes, Bonnie Langford as Roz Keith, and Brian Conley as Franklin Hart. Louise Redknapp is set to leave the cast on 29 June with further casting to be announced.

About the extension, Dolly Parton said: ‘I am so excited that the UK has given both my song and my show 9 to 5 The Musical their very own special day! I couldn’t think of a better date to announce that the West End run of the show will be extending into 2020 with a further 300,000 tickets now on sale, that’s almost more tickets than I have rhinestones on my outfits!’

The timely musical shows three women who are pushed to the edge by their sexist boss. In an attempt to reform their office, they come up with a plan to kidnap their manager and teach him a lesson. But things don’t go quite to plan when the CEO comes for a surprise visit.

So far, the hit musical based on the cult 80s film of the same name has won over critics and audiences with its charm and comedy. With this extension, which will double the length of the show’s planned run, there’s even more of a chance to clock in and discover why everybody’s raving about it.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
