Caroline Sheen will return to the role of ‘Violet Newstead’ in 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL at the Savoy Theatre, London from 4 July 2019. Louise Redknapp plays her final performance on 29 June 2019 (as planned).
Caroline starred as ‘Violet Newstead’ to rave reviews when this production first opened at the Savoy Theatre in February (filling in for Louise Redknapp whilst she recovered from an injury). 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. She was most recently seen as ‘Carys’ in the new BBC series ‘Pitching In.’
Caroline 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 31 August 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!
