Louise Redknapp will re-join the cast of 9 to 5 the Musical in the role of ‘Violet Newstead’ at the Savoy Theatre, London from 25 March until 29 June 2019. 9 to 5 the Musical opened in the West End last month, where Dolly Parton attended the premiere and joined the cast on stage at the finale. The show is booking at the Savoy Theatre until 31 August 2019.
Louise Redknapp most recently starred as 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.

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!
