Casting and additional creative team members will be announced at a later date.
The show features a book by Patricia Resnick, the 1980 film’s original screenwriter, and a Tony-nominated score by country legend Parton (who played Doralee in the film). Like the movie, it tells the story of three workmates pushed to the boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, the women fight to reform their office.
The musical was originally produced on Broadway by Robert Greenblatt in April 2009. It will be produced in Australia by John Frost, Suzanne Jones, and Ambassador Theatre Group Productions.
