Adult: $30 | Concession: $28
Come pour yourself a cup of ambition with The Queen of Corporate herself, Karen From Finance hosting a screening of 9 to 5 and (more than likely) belting out a rendition of Dolly’s “Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin'!” Can you even imagine a better night out?! Starring Dolly Parton (Karen’s all-time favourite idol), Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin this legendary film is championed for calling out sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigots and tackling misogyny head on. Add Karen to the mix and you’ve got a potent combination of feminism and queer pride – expect an extra special night out!
TICKET INCLUDES: Admission to 9 to 5, a glass of sparkling on arrival and a 9 to 5 inspired performance by Karen From Finance.
KAREN FROM FINANCE: Karen celebrates her New Years on July 1st each year, and isn't shy of the odd Friday night after-work drink with the ladies. Her weaknesses include the ATO, Revolver, cute temps from the Agency and conjoined paper clips. In 2017 Karen From Finance took off to the United States of America for her first ever international tour where she was featured at RuPaul’s Drag Con, and continued on to headline shows in New York City, Minneapolis and Los Angeles, as well as a feature spot on the Californian based web-series ‘Hey Qween’.
9 TO 5: Written by Patricia Resnick and director Colin Higgins, 9 to 5 is an of-the-moment social comedy with enduring ramifications, focusing on the trials and tribulations of three working women, fabulously played by Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton (making her extraordinary movie debut). Suffering under the world’s worst – and most sexist – boss (Dabney Coleman), the trio live out their madcap fantasies of revenge and ultimate triumph, proving themselves magnificently in the process.
