Open call for Edinburgh Music Theatre’s Spring Show

Edinburgh Music Theatre has announced details of the welcome meeting and audition dates for its Spring production of 9 to 5: The Musical, playing the Church Hill Theatre April 4 – 8 2023.

The welcome meeting will take place at Barclay Viewforth Church Of Scotland on Wednesday 28 September when newcomers to the company would be able to meet the show’s creative team and members of the EMT  board.

EMT’s 9 to 5: the Musical will play the Church Hill Theatre in April 2023

The show is to be directed by Niall King with musical direction from Libby Crabtree and choreography by Chanel Turner-Ross.

There will be singing and dance auditions for the 9 to 5 ensemble on the night, so you should dress accordingly.

Auditions for principal roles will take place on Saturday 1, Monday 3, Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 October. Audition slots can be booked here, before or after the welcome meeting. Further details of principal roles and audition slots are on the company Facebook page: @edinburghmusictheatre.

The welcome meeting will be an opportunity to get an idea of what it would look like to be a part of the production, and to ask the team any questions about the show itself and being part of EMT. There is an introduction to the company on its website here.


9 to 5: The Musical is a regular favourite from Edinburgh’s amateur musicals companies and was the production which re-opened the Playhouse after the Covid-19 hiatus (★★★★☆ Fit for work).

It tells the story of 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?

The show features a rip-roaring score by queen of country, Dolly Parton, and is inspired by the eighties film of the same name. This is a musical about teaming up, standing up, and taking care of business.
