ABOUT THE SHOW

Fed up with having to work for a “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot,” three female office workers bond over their shared disgust and concoct a plan for revenge. After they accidentally kidnap their boss, they decide to makeover their office into a place where all of their coworkers can thrive. Based on the hilarious, hit movie and filled with unforgettable, original music by Dolly Parton, this musical shines a light on the power of friendship and will have your toes tapping!
