VISALIA – The award-winning musical that empowered midlife women across the nation is coming to Visalia for one night only. 

GFour Productions recently announced it will bring the international hit show “Menopause, The Musical” to the Visalia Fox Theatre for a single performance at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19. Tickets are on sale now and available at the Visalia Fox Theater Box Office, online at foxvisalia.org or by calling (559) 625-1369. Greater discounts for groups of 10+ available by calling (559) 625-1369.

“Menopause, The Musical,” winner of 44 Tony Awards and 54 Drama Desk Awards, is a groundbreaking celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived “The Change.” Now celebrating 19 years of female empowerment through hilarious musical comedy, “Menopause, The Musical” has evolved as a “grassroots” movement of women who deal with life adjustments after 40 by embracing each other and the road ahead. 

Set in a department store, four women meet while shopping for a black lace bra at a lingerie sale. After noticing unmistakable similarities among one another, the cast jokes about their woeful hot flashes, mood swings, wrinkles, weight gain and much more. These women form a sisterhood and unique bond with the entire audience as they rejoice in celebrating that menopause is no longer “The Silent Passage.”

Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, “Menopause, The Musical” is a celebration of women who find themselves at any stage of “The Change.” The laughter-filled 90-minute production gets audience members out of their seats and singing along to parodies from classic pop songs of the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s.

Menopause The Musical, now in its 19th year of production, is recognized as the longest-running scripted production in Las Vegas and continues to entertain nightly at Harrah’s Las Vegas. Seen by more than 17 million, it has played every state in the continental U.S. and more than 500 cities worldwide, and has been translated into nine languages.
