Tumble outta bed
And stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
Yawnin, stretchin, try to come to life
Jump in the shower
And the blood starts pumpin
Out on the streets
The traffic starts jumpin
And folks like me on the job from 9 to 5
Workin 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin
Barely gettin by
Its all takin
And no givin
They just use your mind
And they never give you credit
Its enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it
9 to 5, for service and devotion
You would think that i
Would deserve a fair promotion
Want to move ahead
But the boss wont seem to let me in
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me

The Walton Arts Center is giving away 4 tickets to the October 31st performance of Shrek the Musical! To enter, simply leave us a comment with the name of your favorite Shrek character. A random winner will be chosen on 10/16. Good luck!
Shrek The Musical, based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to life on stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre – not a handsome prince – shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a villain with a SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek.
Featuring a terrific score of 19 all-new songs, big laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, WWOR-TV proclaims Shrek The Musical, “Far, far and away the funniest new musical on Broadway!”
Shrek The Musicalis part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!
Recommended for ogres and ogresses of all ages!

Critically acclaimed as one of the most brilliant, breathlessly hilarious comedies ever written. When a company of nine sets out to produce a touring comedy, frayed nerves and backstage betrayals plunge the production into chaos—from midnight rehearsals to a shambolic first night to the final disastrous performance. Recommended for ages 13+.
“A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce.” – The New York Times
