thanks the cast of

The 2023 Lawyers Play cast certainly worked overtime on our 30th annual fundraising play, 9 to 5 The Musical! The mighty team took on the campy cult classic filled with toe-tapping Dolly Parton hits. They donned their best blonde wigs and finest vintage office attire, delighting audiences from May 9 to 13 at the Tom Hendry Warehouse.
Cast entirely with Manitoba Bar Association members, the Lawyers Play is one of Royal MTC’s largest fundraisers. Our deepest gratitude to patrons, donors, advertisers and sponsors for supporting our efforts. We’d also like to extend sincere thanks to the talented cast and hardworking crew, as well as our many volunteers and committee members.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with their sexist, egotistical and hypocritical boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While the boss remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down.



Thanks to the talent and dedication of Manitoba Bar Association members, the Lawyers Play has raised over $1.1 million in support of MTC and the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival.
