A production by Christine Harris & HIT Productions
See what millions of women worldwide have been laughing about for over 10 years! Since 2001, women of all ages have had their spirits lifted by the show’s light-hearted look at menopause.
This joyful musical parody set to classic tunes from the 60s, 70s and 80s (where My Guy becomes My Thighs, The Lion Sleeps Tonight becomes My Husband Sleeps Tonight and Lookin’ For Love becomes Lookin’ For Food) will have the audience cheering and dancing down the aisles. Menopause The Musical® IN CONCERT gives the audience a more up close and personal experience with the cast, bringing a refreshed look at ‘The Change’.
Menopause The Musical® IN CONCERT crystallises all of the magic, the entire script, songs, laughter and tears of the original stage show, slips it into a cocktail dress, and pours it into an evening of fun and elegance in equal measure.
Imagine if Marlene Dietrich came from Dubbo, had borrowed Mae West’s sense of humour, and decided to share her experience of ‘The Change’ in Rick’s Cafe (Casablanca). If you can, you are close to the collusion of stylish cabaret, comedy, and musical genius that is Menopause The Musical® IN CONCERT.
Menopause The Musical® has entertained audiences in more than 15 countries and nearly 300 international cities. Across Australia, Menopause The Musical® has toured for 132 weeks during 2008 – 2011 breaking box office records and continues in 2012 as Menopause The Musical® IN CONCERT to capital city, metropolitan and regional theatre venues.
