Auburn Community Players present 9 to 5
This musical adaptation based on the 1980 hit movie is brought to the stage featuring local talented actors
of the Auburn Community Players. Set in the late 1970s, 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic, 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is about teaming up and taking care of business. Based on a book by Patricia Resnickand music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, the story follows three female co-workers who concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritic they call their boss.

Pre-Sale Tickets: $15 regular; $13 student/senior ($20/$18 at the door). Call Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation at 253-931-3043, Monday-Thursday, 8:00 AM-9:00 PM; Friday, 8:00 AM-12:00 PM, or order online for Will-Call only pickup at Brown Paper Ticketslinks to external site.

About the Auburn Avenue Theater:
For over 30 years, the Auburn Avenue Theater has presented a diversity of live performances, including Broadway musicals, mystery theater, children's theater, and concerts. The Douglas family, producers of the fine dinner theater featured at the Auburn Avenue Theater for over 20 years, leased the venue to the City of Auburn to continue operating as a performing arts space. In 2007, The City of Auburn reopened the venue, expanding this time-honored tradition of live, quality performing arts, variety entertainment, children's shows, dance and music, right in the heart of downtown Auburn.

History in the Making:
The theater building itself is over 80 years old, however, the first structure to occupy the property over 100 years ago was a carriage house for horses. When the automobile replaced horses as the major mode of transportation, the building was entirely reconstructed as the city's bus depot. New owners converted it to a movie house in the 1940s and continued operating it as such until the mid-70s, when it underwent yet another conversion, this time as a performing arts theater venue.
