With three strong leading ladies and a fun script that sticks closely to the 1980 hit movie it's based on, Ralston Community Theatre's musical “9 to 5” has plenty of Fourth of July pop and sizzle in it.
The movie starred Lily Tomlin as Violet, a low-level manager bucking for a promotion at Consolidated Group; Dolly Parton as Doralee, an executive secretary shunned by co-workers because they think she's sleeping with the boss; and Jane Fonda as Judy, a newly divorced woman seeking her first job at Consolidated.
