Cup of Ambition: A 9 to 5 Live (Movie) Reading

Ghostlight Ensemble presents a special Woman's History Month installment of its ongoing live movie reading series: Cup of Ambition: A 9 to 5 Live (Movie) Reading.

Join us at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 15, at the Celtic Crown (2356 W Cullom Ave, Chicago, IL 60618) in North Center, as we fight sexual harassment and discrimination in the back room of a bar. 

9 to 5 follows three female office workers who get revenge on their tyrannical, sexist boss by abducting him (after realizing they hadn't just killed him — it'll make more sense if you just come to the reading) and running the business themselves.  Please note, this is a reading of the MOVIE starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton, not the inevitable musical adaptation that came later.

The cast is:

Judy: Kim Egan
Violet: Carolyn Minor
Doralee: Coco Sho-Nell
Franklin Hart Jr.: Noah Berman
Roz: Miona Lee
Maria: Alexandra Alontaga
Barbara: Terri Hudson
Margaret: Lisa Uhlig
Missy: Alexandria Moorman
Jack Mead, Chester Hinkle: Chad Wise
Norman, Chuck Strell, Bob Enright: R.J. McLain
Tinsworthy, Eddie, Dick, Dwayne : Norman J. Burt

The reading is directed by Maria Burnham.

There is a suggested donation of $5 at the door, which will help Ghostlight fund its upcoming season, AND an additional donation (we suggest another $5) for GirlForward, a North Side non-profit organization that mentors adolescent refugee girls and provides educational programs and leadership opportunities.
