Are You Up for a Weekend of Fun, Frivolity, Wine & Retro Things?
If so, pack your vintage-inspired bathing suit and get your taste buds ready for a rollercoaster ride of an experience. Oh, and make sure you have a place to rest up – before, between and after – as these events are sure to require some energy and enthusiasm on your part. And while you’re at it (if you can handle more excitement), ask for your Gold Card (at participating hotels) – your ticket to even more fun and extra savings around town.

Eat, drink and be merry. Be there or be square.
Are you old enough to remember ‘9 to 5’ the movie? Have you ever heard Dolly Parton’s song ‘9 to 5’? Have you ever had to work a 9 to 5 job, Monday through Friday, or had a chauvinistic boss? Have you ever wanted to get revenge or just facilitate some level of justice in the world around you? Do you like to be entertained by good old-fashioned fun?
I know there’s a “yes” in there somewhere…
Before ‘The First Wives Club’ with Goldie, Bette and Diane, there was ‘9 to 5’ (1980) with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton. So it only took about 30 years for this cute classic film to get its due recognition. I mean, you know you’ve made it when they make a musical about you.
‘So grab (well, don’t literally grab – have I learned nothing from this movie?!) your mothers, grandmothers, daughters, friends and any willing males because 9 to 5: The Musical’ is coming to Sacramento. Call it entertainment or call it education, but admit we’ve come a long way, Baby.
Brought to you by Broadway Sacramento, ‘9 to 5: The Musical’ is playing March 9 through the 20th at the Community Center Theater. For more information visit: http://sacramento365.com/event/detail/440912413/9_to_5_The_Musical
