Chelan Valley Players present the hilarious spoof on the change of life, Menopause The Musical®.  Since March 2001, the show has entertained and inspired women from coast-to-coast and internationally. The work of writer Jeanie Linders, Menopause The Musical® is a 90-minute production which includes 25 re-lyricized tunes from the ‘60s and ‘70s and culminates with a salute to women who are experiencing The Change.  The show was released for community theatres in September so CVP will be one of the first groups to produce this to show in a small town venue.

Set in a department store, where four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance, the musical pokes fun at things such as hot flashes, memory loss, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and eating binges.

The show’s intended message is that menopause is a passage, but it should no longer be The Silent Passage. It is a stage in every woman’s life that is perfectly normal.

The show will be directed by Serena Fiacco who recently choreographed Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  Cal Vaughn and Judy Johnston are producers.  Kathryn Castrodale heads up the music. Performance dates are set for March 1 ,2 ,8, 9, 15, 16  at the Historic Ruby Theater. All Shows will be 2:30 Matinees.
