By Joanne Engelhardt. For the Palo Alto Daily News. A trio of energetic, versatile and capable actresses do the heavy lifting in the Foothill Music Theatre presentation of “9 to 5 The Musical,” which runs through March 18 at Lohman Theatre on the Foothill College campus in Los Altos Hills. While people over 50 may remember the appealing 1980 movie, “9 to 5,” Dolly Parton later wrote music and lyrics for 17 sprightly songs — including, of course, the uber-hit “9 to 5” — and, with a book by Patricia Resnick, “9 to 5 The Musical” opened on Broadway in 2009 for a five-month run.

At Foothill, director Milissa Carey uses a large-screen video of Dolly herself singing that song to bookend the hokey, but entertaining musical that’s big on down-home charm, The 22-member cast includes three stellar singers in the lead roles of the long-suffering Violet (Glenna dancer key chain. personalized name key chain. ballet key chain. engraved ballerina key chain. gift for ballerina. gift for girl Murillo), sweetly sexy Doralee (Allie Townsend) and timid, unskilled new hire Judy (Rachelle Abbey), They — as well as all the other overworked and underpaid “secretaries” at Consolidated Corporation — are under the oppressive management of one Franklin Hart (a suitably smarmy Aaron Hurley), whose only goal at the moment is bedding the innocent (but oh-so-savvy) Doralee..

Townsend seems completely at ease whether she’s basking in the whistles and stares by Hart and other male cast members or using her Parton-esque Southern drawl in song. Wearing form-fitting dresses with plunging necklines, she’s both an eyeful and an earful as she declares that her voluptuous figure is actually a liability at times in the song, “Backwoods Barbie” (in a push-up bra). Equally as impressive is Murillo (Violet) who grounds the play by being both coolly efficient and incredibly smart. And has she got a set of pipes.

Abbey does a good job of gradually coming out of her shell and gaining confidence, So much so that when her ex-husband shows up to make amends after his young girlfriend dumps him, she tells him she doesn’t need him in the dynamic “Get Out and Stay Out” number, Hurley is able to walk that thin line between being disgustingly chauvinist and exuding sleazy charm while romancing Doralee, It works dancer key chain. personalized name key chain. ballet key chain. engraved ballerina key chain. gift for ballerina. gift for girl most of the time, though his lustful version of “Here for You” borders on the bizarre, Kudos to Kayvon Kordestani who milks the role of the office drunk Margaret for all it’s worth, She has an amazing way of twisting her feet inward and dangling her body precariously while sitting in a chair, Angela Cesena as Hart’s assistant Roz, although sometimes incredibly over the top, still impresses when she reveals her desperate loneliness in the song “5 to 9.”..

It’s not easy to corral a musical like this that requires the entire cast to act, sing and dance. Fortunately the eight-member ensemble is up to the task as they scramble backstage changing from office workers to cowgirls to doctors, policemen and more. Critic’s choice: Check out Jordan Covington (the acrobatic one) in the opening number. There are a few times when there’s dead space that director Carey could have eliminated, especially in Act 1. Dolores Duran-Cefalu’s musical direction of Parton’s lively score works fine as she and five other musicians play offstage. The crowd favorite is, obviously, the opening number, “9 to 5” which became known as the working woman’s anthem. Most of Parton’s other melodies are straight out of the “easy listening” category.

Claire Alexander’s choreography shows dancer key chain. personalized name key chain. ballet key chain. engraved ballerina key chain. gift for ballerina. gift for girl originality and takes full advantage of the smallish stage, The musical takes a strange (but comical) U-turn at the end of Act 1, Doralee, Violet and Judy kidnap Hart and decide to hold him hostage in his own home….in a mechanical harness attached to his garage door opener, (This nefarious action seems wildly popular with the audience.), Of course, in a musical comedy such as this, all turns out happily in the end, Reliable character actor Todd Wright turns up in an all-white suit as Mr, Tinsworthy, CEO of the company (and Hart’s boss), He gives Hart a promotion — more like a punishment — by sending him to manage the company’s branch in Bolivia, then promotes Violet to fill Hart’s position, and everybody — cast and audience alike — goes home happy..

Chiara Cola and her team dresses the entire cast in outfits befitting the late 1970s, with Hart and his men in tailored suits, Doralee in too-cute dresses with low-cut necklines and all the women in working-girl clothes from that era. Despite some shortcomings, it’s likely audiences will find this musical a big dose of corny fun — suitable for everyone over 10 or 12. Email Joanne Engelhardt at ———————————————————.

Audiences seldom get to hear two orchestras for the price of one, but the New Century Chamber Orchestra and Zurich Chamber Orchestra are teaming up to provide exactly that, Presented by New Century under artistic partner Daniel Hope, the two ensembles kick off the weekend with a rare side-by-side “rush hour” concert, The 60-minute program includes Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances, Grieg’s “Holberg” Suite, Mozart’s Divertimento and Max dancer key chain. personalized name key chain. ballet key chain. engraved ballerina key chain. gift for ballerina. gift for girl Richter’s “Summer 3” from “Recomposed Vivaldi — the Four Seasons.”..
