Director - Kriss Hubbard

Musical Director - Craig Price

Choreographer - Jessica Martin

Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss, Mr Hart. 

In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?

Auditions for this show took place in October 2016. The show opened in March 2017 and ran for 5 nights to fantastic reviews from the audience. It was the first time directing for Kriss Hubbard, and the first lead role in The Zodiac for Laura Johnson, who was nominated for Best Actress at the North West NODA Awards.
