The Treading the Boards cast clocked-in to a packed Aberdeen Arts Centre with their latest offering 9 to 5: The Musical.
Based on the 1980 movie of the same name, this bright and breezy show featured some catchy numbers written by country star Dolly Parton, a talented young cast and some energetic choreography.
The story revolves around three female co-workers who, sick of their sexist boss, concoct a plan to have him sacked – all with hilarious consequences.
Toni MacFarlane is fabulous as office supervisor Violet, Robyn Smith perfectly portrays new staff member Judy, while Sarah Smith as Doralle (the role that Dolly made famous) has great characterisation, complete with Southern drawl.
We see each of the ladies’ characters deliciously evolve and witness them overcoming their own problems to make their office a better place to be, proving that girl power can indeed win the day.
Special mention must go to sleazy boss Franklin Hart, played by Liam Bowie, and his gullible sidekick Roz, played by Kirsty McRae.
With some great musical numbers, including Shine Like The Sun and One of the Boys the whole cast were slick and highly entertaining, ending the show with one last rendition of 9 to 5.
