Tumble out of bed and pour yourself a cup of ambition - 9 to 5 the Musical is coming to Sydney!

The stage adaptation of the beloved 1980 film begins its run at the Capitol Theatre from February 16 and to celebrate Australia Community Media has 10 double passes to give away.

Australia Idol winner Casey Donovan, Aussie stage icon Marina Prior and Erin Clare star as the three protagonists, who take down their boss, played by the uber-talented Eddie Perfect (Offspring).

Iconic performer Caroline O'Connor is also in the cast.

Country music superstar Dolly Parton starred in the original film, and is responsible for the catchy titular tune and well as the score for the stage adaptation.

She said she was thrilled to see the Aussie cast assembled.

"I am so excited that Marina, Casey and Erin will be playing Violet, Judy and Doralee alongside Caroline and Eddie in the Australian cast of 9 to 5," Parton said.

"The response to 9 to 5 from around the world has been incredible so far.

"I can't wait for everyone down under to have a fun - and funny - night out at 9 to 5."

The production is supported by the state government's Destination NSW and is expected to draw crowds to NSW.

Tourism minister Stuart Ayres said 9 to 5 premiering in Sydney was a coup for the state's visitor economy.

"The NSW visitor economy stands to benefit significantly from hosting Dolly Parton's 9 to 5 and we look forward to welcoming visitors to Sydney to see this upbeat, high-energy production come to life and bring some rhinestone sparkle to our stages," he said.

"Securing this production for Sydney will bring welcome positivity as we emerge from the challenges of the pandemic."

A sensation on the West End and inspired by the hit film, the musical tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy, three enterprising workmates pushed to the edge by their mean-spirited boss Franklin Hart Jnr. Resorting to wit, comradery and cunning, they dream up a no holds barred scheme to kidnap and turn the tables on their controlling supervisor in the most hilariously defiant of ways.

The only question is, will the feisty trio manage to change the office culture to reach their full potential - or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?

9 to 5 runs at the Capital Theatre, Haymarket, from February 16 for a limited season.

Tickets start at $69. Learn more: 9to5themusical.com.au.
