  • Menopause The Musical - Women On Fire!

    23 October, 2018

    The original Australian Menopause The Musical debuted in Melbourne in 2005 for a six week season which was extended to six months. The show then went on to tour other capital cities for five years and was seen by 980,000 theatre goers across the country. Menopause The Musical follows the story of four women who meet at a department store lingerie sale and discover they have plenty in common, including mood swings, night sweats, hot flushes, lacklustre sex drive and much more! A sisterhood is created between these diverse women as they realise that Menopause is no longer ‘the silent passage,’ but a stage in every woman’s life, which is perfectly normal!

    Men love it too! This hilarious musical parody staged to classic tunes from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. The clever changes in words will leave you smiling and even dancing in the aisles!
