Women across Connecticut are invited to join the sisterhood and celebrate “The Change” when Menopause The Musical comes to the Palace Theater in Waterbury for two nights of musical fun, April 17 and 18 at 7:30p.m.  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 at 100 East Main Street in Waterbury, CT.  Groups of 15 or more qualify for discounted rates and should call the Group Sales hotline at 203-346-2011.

Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, Menopause The Musical writer and producer Jeanie Linders created the show as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or 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.

Patrons are encouraged to arrive early at the theater for a variety of pre-show events that start at 6p.m.  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 $5.00, will pose for pictures with the ladies 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.

Menopause The Musical has entertained audiences across the country in more than 450 U.S. cities, 300 international cities and nearly 15 countries, and it is estimated that nearly 11 million women have attended a performance since the 2001 opening performance in Orlando, FL.  For more information, visit www.menopausethemusical.com.
