National Tour of ‘Menopause The Musical’ to Play at UM

February 01, 2017

MISSOULA – The international hit show and musical comedy “Menopause The Musical” will hot flash across the Dennison Theatre stage for a 2 p.m. matinee performance Saturday, March 18, at the University of Montana.

Tickets currently are on sale and can be purchased online at http://www.umt.edu/griztix/, at all GrizTix outlets or by calling 888-MONTANA.

Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, the musical is a groundbreaking celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of or have survived “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. “Menopause The Musical” has evolved as a grassroots movement of women who deal with life adjustments after age 40 by embracing one another and the road ahead.

Set in a department store, four women meet while shopping for a black lace bra at a lingerie sale. After noticing similarities among one another, they cast jokes about their woeful hot flashes, mood swings, wrinkles, weight gain and 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.”

“Menopause The Musical”, now in its 14th year of production, is recognized as the longest-running scripted production in Las Vegas and continues to entertain nightly. The hilarious musical has entertained audiences in more than 450 U.S. cities, nearly 300 international cities and a total of 15 countries.
