(OUTview NW) RE-view: Peaches Christ was back, front and center; Ben DelaCreme and Major Scales shined in 9 to 5 Inches

by MK Scott

The SIFF Egyptian Theatre had a full house on Thursday, June 15th for the stage show and parody, 9 to 5 Inches, written and directed by Peaches Christ and produced by Qurb Productions. This time Peaches was finally front and center as Peachie (the role originally played by Jane Fonda in the film version). Joining her was the iconic, Heklina (in the Lily Tomlin role) and 'Rupaul Drag Race' alum, Pandora Box (in the Dolly role).

Local queen and 'Drag Race' alum, Ben Delacreme was a hoot as Roz and Major Scales (after 2 days notice) was phenomenal as slimy Mr. Fart. The role was going to be played by Mackenzie Miller, but due to illness he had to bale out. Several other local performers made cameo appearances, including, Fraya Love, Strawberry Shartcake, Isabella Extynn, Angel Snowbunny, Visage LaRue, and Tipsy Rose Lee!

It was great to see Sparkle Leigh back in action; bearded and UN-recognizable as 'the Office Lush.' Without Leigh it wouldn't be have been the same.

9 to 5 Inches was a fast moving version, based on the 1980 camp classic. Centered around an office of drag queens and their chauvinistic and kinky boss, Mr. Fart (Scales) with senior office queen (Heklina) showing the new girl (Christ) around and becoming fast friends with the rumored office slut (Box).

In one moment, each queen had their fantasy of getting Fart, and explained (out of character) that due to time and money they couldn't show the fantasies.

There were a few musical numbers that mostly featured Heklina, DeLa and Peaches and for the finale, Pandora became Dolly in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Now, that is an idea for a future Christ production!

What's next? Peaches and Company have announced a Hocus Pocus parody in the Fall, which should give Peaches MORE equal time to shine.
