ON JULY 4, 2019, Caroline Sheen will return to the role of ‘Violet Newstead’ in 9 to 5 The Musical, which is currently booking at the Savoy Theatre until April 2020.

Sheen starred as ‘Violet Newstead’ to rave reviews when the production first opened at the Savoy Theatre in February. She is renowned for her leading roles in the West End, US and on tour throughout the UK.

These include the West End productions of Les Misérables at the Palace and Queen’s theatres, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium, the original cast of The Witches of Eastwick at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Once in a Lifetime and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum at the National Theatre and the title role in Mary Poppins on tour throughout the US and the UK.

Sheen was most recently seen as ‘Carys’ in the new BBC series Pitching In.

In 9 to 5 The Musical Sheen will star opposite Amber Davies as ‘Judy Bernly’, Natalie McQueen as ‘Doralee Rhodes’, Bonnie Langford as ‘Roz Keith’ and Brian Conley as ‘Franklin Hart until August 31, 2019.

Casting from September 2019 onwards, for both the London production at the Savoy Theatre and the second production starting its tour in Birmingham, will be announced soon.

9 to 5 The Musical tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Concocting a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor, will the women manage to reform their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit? Inspired by the cult film this hilarious new West End production is about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business!
