Bridgnorth Musical Theatre Company is in rehearsal for their main production for this year, ‘9 to 5’, which takes place from Wednesday 21 February to Saturday 24 February. Based on the 1980 musical of the same name with music and lyrics by the one and only Dolly Parton, the story is set in a typical 1970s office environment where three unlikely friends take control and learn there’s nothing they cannot do – even in a man’s world!

If you happened to work those hours in Bridgnorth during the 1970s, the company’s director Gina Slater would love to hear from you. You might have been a typist in the typing pool or a secretary working in a small office with a male boss. Perhaps you worked as a dinner lady in a canteen, or were you the office cleaner? Were you a male employer with lots of ladies working for you, or were you the office boy, warehouse man, driver or cook in the company canteen?

Whatever your memories of those days, email your experiences to bmtc_9to5@icloud.com – visit bridgnorthmusicaltheatrecompany.co.uk for details; tickets are £15 and shows start at Bridgnorth Leisure Centre at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
