‘9 to 5’ to Take Center Stage at Bronxville High School

Bronxville High School will present “9 to 5” as its spring musical from March 9-11. The spectacular production – a hilarious story of friendship and revenge – features close to 100 talented students, who are part of the cast, crew and live orchestra.

“The performance is a lighthearted show that deals with some very real issues facing women in the early 1980s,” theater director Pamela Simpson said. “Women had to fight for equal rights and access to higher level positions. I wanted to do an upbeat show that featured our senior girls and this show – with its three female leads and its catchy music – fit the bill.”

The production, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. The show features impeccable costume design, created by art teacher Nicole Schorr and a team of dedicated parents and students. Many of the students in the cast play more than one character and will be required to make quick costume changes throughout the show.

“This is a very difficult show with lots of tricky harmonies and rhythms,” Simpson said. “Normally, students aren't called for so many rehearsals, but this show has required a great deal of dedication and commitment. It is very gratifying to see them develop and use their artistic talents.”

Besides Schorr, Simpson’s creative team includes musical director Vincent Iannelli, choreographer Jason Summers, technical director Luke Geiling, set designer Stephen Davan and parent producer Betty Geiling.

Performances are:
Thursday, March 9 at 5 p.m.
Friday, March 10 at 7 p.m.
Saturday, March 11 at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $15 at the door.
