The Community Players present ‘Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5: The Musical’


Rhode Island's oldest community theater, The Community Players, currently celebrating their 101st season, is proud to present Dolly Parton’s smash hit 9 to 5: The Musical from December 2 – 11, 2022.

This hilarious high-energy musical, based on the popular movie of the same name, tells the story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era, when three unlikely friends and co-workers conspire to take control of their company and learn there's nothing they can't do — even in a man's world.

The production is directed by Marcia Zammarelli of Cranston, with music direction by Esther Zabinski of Foxboro, and choreography by Leslie Racine Vazquez of Warwick.

In conjunction with the production, The Community Players, which have been supporting community service projects since its inception, will be collecting donations for the Blackstone Valley Advocacy Center, which has been providing services to victims of domestic and sexual violence in the Blackstone Valley area for 35 years. Items to be collected, which are in great need at this time, include towels, washcloths, grocery gift cards, pharmacy gift cards, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, deodorant, pillows, pillowcases, and twin-size sheets. Items can be dropped off with The Community Players at any of the performances.

Produced at Jenks Auditorium located on Division Street in Pawtucket, across from McCoy Stadium, performances are scheduled for Dec. 2, 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11 with Friday and Saturday curtain times at 7:30 pm and Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $25.00 for adults and $18.00 for students (with a valid ID). Tickets can be purchased online at or reserved at (401) 726-6860. Visa and Mastercard accepted.
