Lights, camera and action! Rehearsals for GH Theatre’s musical adaptation of the 1980 hit film “9 to 5” are now in full swing. Each year, the spring musical production allows talented students to shine as they showcase their artistic talents and for the 2024 musical, Henry Rowen (‘24) is excited to shine in the spotlight as he assumes the lead role of Franklin Hart Jr., the misogynistic boss that the three female employees seek to overthrow. 

Henry has always thrived in the theatrical spotlight and “9 to 5” will be his fourth production at Green Hope. However, Rowen did not always have his eyes set on the stage, accidentally receiving the class freshman year. Though he joined the class by accident, Rowen grew to love the theater community. “There are so many amazing people and we all support each other through all our endeavors whether they’re theater-related or not. It’s genuinely so much fun to spend time with each other at rehearsals and make productions with the community. I’ve made so many great friends and genuine connections with other people.” 

For Rowen, “9 to 5” is more than just a satirical portrayal but rather an opportunity to make a lasting impact on his audiences through his artistic expressions, an aspect of theater that entices him. “I know that “9 to 5” is supposed to be funny and while I hope that the audience gets a good laugh out of watching it, I also hope that people understand the message and are inspired to make changes in order to better the community around them.”

Rowen encourages everyone to give theater a chance, saying, “I know that joining something new, especially theater, can be scary and unfamiliar but there are so many cool things about theater and it’s something that everyone should try out at least once. If you’re not interested in acting, there are other roles like tech and props which can be a great experience as well.”

Though Henry is a senior and “9 to 5” will be his last production at Green Hope, he is looking forward to immersing himself in more theatrical productions at whichever college he attends. This season, Rowen is most excited for the senior green room, a tradition that GH Theater holds during the last show of the season where seniors give their final farewell. 

Henry Rowen can’t wait to put his four years of experience together for one last Green Hope production and is excited to showcase “9 to 5” starting April 18th with shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.
