Showplace Performance Centre presents Menopause the Musical

Date:Thursday, March 8 & Friday, March 9, 2018
Time:8 p.m.
Location:    Showplace Performance Centre (290 George St. N., Peterborough)
Set in a department store, four women with seemingly nothing in common meet by chance at a lingerie sale over a black lace bra. As they make fun of their hot flashes, night sweats, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, chocolate binges and a whole lot more, these diverse women come to realize that they have more to share than ever imagined. Featuring an All -Star Canadian cast, including Janet Martin, Michelle E. White, Jayne Lewis, and Nicole Robert, these women form a sisterhood and a unique bond with the audience as they rejoice in celebrating that menopause is not “The Silent Passage” anymore! This laugh out loud comedy gets audiences out of their seats and singing along to parodies from 25 classic hit songs of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s at every performance. Disco hit “Staying’ Alive” becomes “Staying Awake,” Motown favourite “My Girl” is transformed into “My Thighs,” and “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” becomes “In the Guest Room or on the Sofa, My Husband Sleeps at Night."
