Per the summary: “The outrageously entertaining and always timely 9 to 5: The Musical follows the hilarious adventures of three female office workers who turn the tables on their sexist boss.

As they take charge, they find out there’s nothing they can’t do…even in a man’s world. Coming to OnStage Atlanta, this crowd-pleasing musical comedy–based on the hit 1980 film starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton–boasts music and lyrics by Parton and a book by Patricia Resnick, who also wrote the film.

It’s back: Theatre in the Square has returned to Marietta, and the 2016-2017 season us well underway.

Up next? From March 2-19, 2019, Theatre in the Square will put on production of the classic musical: Smoke on the Mountain. Per the summary: “Smoke on the Mountain takes you back to the end of the Great Depression, where the Sanders Family Singers have stopped at the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church to perform their traveling gospel show. During the show, the audience will serve as the church congregation as the family ‘witnesses’ by telling stories about their lives. Though they at first try to appear perfect, one thing after another goes awry and reveals their true — and hilariously imperfect–natures. With more than 30 bluegrass gospel tunes, from the popular (‘Amazing Grace,’ ‘I’ll Fly Away’) to the obscure (‘Filling Station,’ ‘Christian Cowboy’), this show is sure to set your spirit soaring.”

Marietta’s new Theatre in the Square is located at 11 Whitlock Ave NW, Marietta.
