Jul 18 all-day

A RENOVATIVE SEASON:  Due to renovations at WNCC,  all summer productions will be held offsite in a variety of venues in a shortened season.  Theatre West is grateful for a partnership with the Scottsbluff Public Schools during this renovation period.

Two MAIN STAGE productions, Dolly Parton’s “9 – 5” THE MUSICAL and “FOOTLOOSE” will be held in the Scottsbluff High School Auditorium during the month of July as well as the TOFY Camp children’s musical production of “ANNIE KIDS”.

“9 to 5”  THE MUSICAL

Dolly Parton’s  “9 to 5”  THE MUSICAL,  with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s. this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.  Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company A jubilant score and easily relatable characters make 9 to 5 is the perfect show for community theatres.

“FOOTLOOSE” 

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town,  Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school.   What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over his daughter and  the town’s youth.   When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation.  What emerges is a father longing for the son he lost and a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.  To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated score,  Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
