9 to 5
Three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can’t do, even in a man’s world.
This orchestration is based on the 2010 US National Tour production.
This show is orchestrated to be player-conducted from the Keyboard 1 book. There are a total of 2 keyboard books in this show and both are heavily programmed. Both parts will require an advanced player.
Keyboard 1 is the primary piano book but also has dozens of other patches throughout the book. Some of these include various EP’s, harpsichord, Wurly, Rhodes, woodwinds, clavinet, strings, and synth padding to name a few.
Keyboard 2 was originally orchestrated for using a double stack keyboard setup with all of the B3 organ patches being played on an unweighted Hammond XK3 MIDI organ controller on the upper manual and all the other sounds played on a weighted 88 key Yamaha keyboard controller on the lower manual. Our programming can accommodate both setups. Please request the one you would like on the checkout page. However, if you only have access to a single keyboard, make sure to spend lots of time reading the player notes in the programming so your player can mark their part accurately. There are lots of octave displacements and additional patches added to accommodate the programming being condensed to a single MIDI keyboard controller since the written part assumes the player has 2 stacked keyboards. As for the other patches in this book, they include strings, harpsichord, woodwinds, EP’s, brass, accordion, and synth pads among many other sounds. Key 2 is a challenging book to navigate regardless of your setup and will require a talented player who can riff on the B3 parts but who also has lots of experience with keyboard programming and very fast patch changes.

9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s. this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.
