HAVING played to sell-out audiences in London’s West End, the sensational production of 9 to 5 The Musical arrives into the Liverpool Empire next month.
Louise Redknapp will be returning to Liverpool, playing the role of Violet Newstead. She most recently starred as Sally Bowles in the national tour of Cabaret and 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.
She said, “I am so excited to be joining the touring cast of 9-5 and coming to Liverpool. Having lived in Liverpool for many years it feels like a second home to me. I can’t wait to be back!”
Amber Davies will be playing the role of Judy Bernly. She graduated in 2016 with a Diploma in Musical Theatre from the Urdang Academy. Her credits whilst training include Bring It On, My Favourite Year and Memphis. In 2017 Amber was the winner of the ITV reality series “Love Island”.
9 to 5 The Musical opened in the West End in February, where Dolly Parton attended the premiere and joined the cast on stage at the finale. 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 multi Grammy Award winner, country legend and pop icon Dolly Parton.
The show, based on the 20th Century Fox Picture, 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 women 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!
