Louise Redknapp delays her 9 to 5 opening due to injury

Louise Redknapp has been forced to temporarily pull out of the Dolly Parton musical 9 to 5, after falling in the street on the way to rehearsals on Tuesday, badly gashing  her chin and fracturing her wrist, resulting in her being signed off work for two months.

In a statement today the producers said: "Due to an injury this week, Louise Redknapp has had to temporarily withdraw from performing the role of Violet in 9 to 5 The Musical. The recovery time recommended means Louise is no longer able to properly rehearse the show in the remaining time left before opening. Together we have made the difficult decision to delay Louise’s start date in the show. We hope that Louise will start performances sometime towards the end of March/early April 2019. Everyone at 9 to 5 wishes Louise a speedy recovery and we look forward to welcoming her back”.

The name of the actress stepping in to play the role in Louise’s absence will be announced shortly. Any patrons who would like to exchange their tickets to a performance when Louise has returned to the show should contact their point of sale.
The show also stars Amber Davies, Brian Conley, Bonnie Langford and Natalie McQueen.
