National Tour of Menopause the Musical Returns to the Saenger– April 30

Menopause the Musical, the groundbreaking celebration of women on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived “The Change,” brings its national tour back to the Saenger Theatre on Thursday, April 30, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for this performance go on sale to the public on Thursday, March 12 at 10 a.m. at the Saenger Theatre box office, charge by phone by calling 800-745-3000 or online at ticketmaster.com.

Now celebrating 13 years of female empowerment through hilarious musical comedy, Menopause The Musical® has evolved as a “grassroots” movement of women who deal with life adjustments after 40 by embracing each other and the road ahead.

Set in a department store, four women meet by chance while shopping for a black lace bra at a lingerie sale. After noticing unmistakable similarities among one another, the all-female cast jokes about their woeful hot flashes, mood swings, wrinkles, weight gain and much more. These women form a sisterhood and unique bond with the entire audience as they rejoice in celebrating that menopause is no longer “The Silent Passage.”

Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, Menopause The Musical® was created as a celebration of women who find themselves at any stage of “The Change.” The laughter-filled 90-minute production gets audience members out of their seats and singing along to parodies from classic pop songs of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s.
