Theatre Young Harris to Present “9 to 5: The Musical”

YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – Young Harris College’s Theatre Young Harris will present four performances of “9 to 5: The Musical” in Glenn Auditorium of the Clegg Fine Arts Building on the YHC campus. Performances are scheduled for Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 25-27, at 7 p.m.  A “Pay What You Can” preview is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 24, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for seniors 65+ or with YHC ID.

Based on the hit movie from 1980 with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is an outrageous tale of three unlikely friends who take control of their office and learn there is nothing they cannot do—even in a man’s world.

“What excites me about this production is the spotlight it puts on the individual talents in our department. Even among the ensemble, each person in the show gets at least one moment to really shine,” said Chair of the Theatre Department and Assistant Professor of Theatre Anne Towns. “It’s a hilarious show, and I’ve been blown away by the comic talents of this cast. Meanwhile, the set and costumes are some of the best we’ve ever seen here at YHC, and a lot of that is thanks to our students working backstage.”

Directed by Towns, the production features senior theatre major Kaisha Marlow of Villa Rica, Ga., as Violet, sophomore theatre major Keeley Akisson of McDonough, Ga., as Doralee, senior theatre major Lindsey Koch of Douglasville, Ga., as Judy, sophomore music major Kevin Garland of Adairsville, Ga., as Hart, sophomore theatre major Hannah Johnson of Marietta, Ga., as Roz, and freshman theatre major Kevin Rains of Ellerslie, Ga., as Joe.

The ensemble also includes sophomore theatre major Drew Andersen of Atlanta, Ga., sophomore theatre major Natalie Andric of Dawsonville, Ga., senior theatre major LaDareon Copeland of Warner Robins, Ga., junior business and public policy major Natasha Davidson of Blue Ridge, Ga., freshman theatre major Charles Ellerby of Atlanta, Ga., senior theatre major Alana Lambert of Dallas, Ga., senior theatre major Ben March of Blairsville, Ga., sophomore theatre major Sarah Mctyre of Milledgeville, Ga., senior theatre major Stephanie Mills of Bainbridge, Ga., senior theatre and music major Sarah Stogsdill of Shalimar, Fla., freshman theatre major Kristin Talley of Lawrenceville, Ga., senior theatre major Brandon Thomas of Oxford, Ga., senior music major Avonne Waddell of Dalton, Ga., and sophomore theatre major Austin Wilson of Talking Rock, Ga.
