Fresh from dazzling in the West End run of the show, Louise Redknapp will reprise her role as ‘Violet Newstead’ in the forthcoming UK tour of Dolly Parton’s smash-hit 9 to 5 The Musical.
Leading the way as one of the first full scale musicals to tour the UK in 2021, Louise will appear in the show when it heads to The Alexandra, Birmingham from Tuesday 16 - Saturday 20 November 2021.
Louise Redknapp played the role of ‘Violet Newstead’ to rave reviews from audiences and critics alike when 9 to 5 The Musical opened in the West End at the Savoy Theatre in 2019. Louise’s other theatre credits include ‘Sally Bowles’ in the national tour of “Cabaret”. In 2016 she reached the final of “Strictly Come Dancing”. As a musician Louise has sold millions of records. She was a member of the band Eternal before embarking on a highly successful solo career, with her first live shows in 15 years selling out all over the UK.
Dolly Parton said today “I am so proud that 9 to 5 will be coming back soon to theatres all across the UK. Louise has been wonderful since she led the show in the West End and we're all so excited to give audiences the best night out after we have all waited so long!”.
9 to 5 The Musical features a book by Patricia Resnick, the legendary film’s original screenwriter, and an original Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score by country legend and pop icon Dolly Parton. It tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy - three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the girls manage to reform their office - or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit? Inspired by the cult film this hilarious new West End production is about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business!
Further casting for the UK tour is set to be announced soon.
