A funny take on women’s struggle in the workplace comes to Streator

Posted by wlpo on May 14, 2014

Long before the movie Office Space, there was 9 to 5. The film about three women in the workforce is the basis for a musical that opens Sunday in Streator.

Nine to Five the Musical is directed by Joey Beavers who says he chose it after falling in love with the score several years ago. He was also a big fan of the movie staring Dolly Parton and Lilly Tomlin.  The musical stars Melanie Maskel, Samantha Farb, Kelly Lefler and Greg Tullis. It opens with a matinee Sunday at Engle Lane Theater in Streator and runs through May 24. Tickets are $20.

Learn more about it by listening to an interview with Beavers that’s up at the WLPO AM and FM news page.
