On Wednesday, October 19 and Thursday, October 20 at 7:30 p.m., the Playhouse will present Menopause the Musical, an off-Broadway hit that will have audiences cheering and dancing in the aisles.

Since its creation 15 years ago, Menopause the Musical has been performed to sold-out audiences across North America and around the world. This hit show features 25 brilliant parodies based on classic hit songs from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s.

Set in a department store, this wildly funny musical brings together four women who at first appear to have nothing in common other than an interest in the same bra, but who in fact share more than they could have imagined. The characters make fun of everything from their woeful hot flashes and mood swings, to night sweats and chocolate binges.

These women create a sense of sisterhood and form a bond with the audience, celebrating together over the realization that menopause no longer needs to be “the silent passage.”

Tickets for Menopause the Musical are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office by calling 458-8344 or online at
