9 to 5 The Musical returns to Manchester Palace Theatre next March, with TV and musical theatre star Claire Sweeney.

She’s Violet Newstead, one of three workmates pushed to boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss.

Sweeney is best known as Lindsey Corkhill in Brookside but her West End roles include Roxie Hart in Chicago and Miss Adelaide in Guys and Dolls.

Vivian Panka makes her professional UK stage debut as Judy Bernly.
