Stage Crafters Community Theatre has announced its third and final production of its 44th season will be “9 to 5 the Musical.”

Three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can't do, even in a man's world.

“9 To 5 the Musical,” with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy — giving their boss the boot!

Performances will be held Nov. 4-6 and 11-13 at the Fort Walton Beach Civic Auditorium on Miracle Strip Parkway. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays.

Stage Crafters Community Theatre Inc. has been committed to showcasing engaging performances for the artistic nourishment of its community as well as enabling performers to exercise their creative outlets on stage for more than 40 years in Fort Walton Beach. This not-for-profit all volunteer organization has received critical acclaim for its slew of groundbreaking performances and directorial expertise.

While performers continue to ignite standing ovations from the stage, performing is not the only thing Stage Crafters does well. The dedicated back stage crews aid in making every aspect of production smooth and flawless each and every time, promoting the technical superiority that Stage Crafters is proud to represent as standard.

Stage Crafters encourages anyone with an interest in sharpening their skills in the auditorium on or off the stage to contact them and bring their creativity to life through internships and/or mentorships, which may also count as school credits and satisfy community service requirements.
