The ladies have taken over, and revenge has never been more hilarious. The high-energy hit comedy “9 to 5” with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, is now on stage at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 N. Michigan Rd., Indianapolis. Based on the famous 1980 film, “9 to 5 The Musical” welcomes the return of several favorite performers to the Beef & Boards stage, and continues live on stage through March 24.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. They conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do – even in a man’s world. Set in the late 1970s, “9 to 5: The Musical” is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic, “9 To 5: The Musical” is about teaming up and taking care of business.
