Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, Menopause The Musical was created by writer and producer Jeanie Linders as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or who have survived “The Change.” Produced by GFour Productions, the laughter-filled 90-minute production includes parodies of classic songs from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s and revolves around four women at a lingerie sale with nothing in common but a black lace bra, memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much sex, and a little thing called menopause.
Tickets are $49.50, $39.50 and $28.50, and can be purchased by phone at 203-346-2002, online atwww.palacetheaterct.org, or in person at the Palace Theater Box Office, located at100 East Main Street inWaterbury, CT. Groups of 15 or more qualify for discounted rates and should call the Group Sales hotline at 203-346-2011.
Pre-show events start at 6 pm. On opening night,WFSB personality Scot Haney will take on the evening’s hosting duties and give patrons a meet-and-greet opportunity in the lobby before the show begins. As an added bonus, the Waterbury Fire Department’s calendar guys will be on hand to “heat-up” both performances, and for $5, will pose for pictures with women in attendance. Proceeds from the photos will benefit the Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp in Union, CT, an outdoor camp for kids from around the world who have survived life-altering burn injuries. The camp provides burn victims with a variety of social and physical activities designed to help campers overcome anxieties, develop their physical skills and move beyond their scars and injuries.
