Holy Trinity High School, located in Hicksville, New York, is well known for it’s theater program being one of the best high school theater programs on the island. This past weekend, Trinity’s most recent production of 9 to 5 had more success than the cast could ever have imagined. The show ran Thursday though Saturday at 8 pm, and packed the house every night.
9 to 5, a musical based off the 980 movie by the same name, has music and lyrics written by Dolly Parton and tells the story of three female coworkers who set out to get revenge against their sexist, egotistical boss. The women kidnap their boss and hold him hostage in his own home, while they give their office a much needed makeover. The show is all about female empowerment and removing toxic influences from your life.
Tara Burns, a recent graduate of Holy Trinity High School, was blown away by the production. “This is such a powerful show and they did such an incredible job with it. I walked out of that theater a strong, confident, independent woman because of how inspiring that performance was!” says Tara.
