Something Theatrical

It's 9 to 5 at the Barn Theatre

The Guiding Light and Dolly Parton fans, rejoice!

The Barn Theatre, in Augusta, will stage Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5: The Musical July 6–18, starring none other than Emmy-nominated actor Robert Newman, who played Joshua Lewis on the daytime soap The Guiding Light for 28 years.

Based on the hit 1980 film, which starred Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and the stage show’s composer/lyricist, Dolly Parton, the Broadway musical adaptation follows three very different women coworkers who are struggling with a misogynistic boss and the impenetrable boys’ club at their firm and decide to exact revenge.

Show times are 8 p.m. July 6–10 and 12–17 and 5 p.m. July 11 and 18. Tickets are $41–$49 and can be purchased at or by calling 731-4121. For more information, visit
