IN 1980, DOLLY PARTON taught us how to “grab a cup of ambition” and even the score with a misogynistic boss. That movie went on to become 9 to 5: The Musical, with a full score by Parton and a Broadway run. The musical comedy opens the 2018/19 season at Georgia Ensemble Theatre in Roswell with familiar Atlanta actors Jill Hames and Wendy Melkonian, along with newcomer Alyssa Flowers, picking up the all-for-one ethos from Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. Brian Kurlander plays the boss. The 16-song score includes “Backwoods Barbie,” “Cowgirl’s Revenge” and the popular title tune. What a way to make a living!
