Girls’ night out

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - Escape - - GOLD COAST LIFESTYLES -

LADIES, it’s time to get to­gether for the ul­ti­mate girls’ night out at Menopause The Mu­si­cal at Twin Towns next week.

In­spired by ‘‘ a hot flush and a bot­tle of wine’’, Menopause The Mu­si­cal is a cel­e­bra­tion of women who are ei­ther on the brink, in the mid­dle, or have sur­vived ‘ the change’.

Set in a depart­ment store, four women ( a soap star, a Dubbo house­wife, a power woman and an earth mother) with noth­ing in com­mon, other than a black lace bra, meet by chance at a lin­gerie sale.

The women quickly bond over shared sto­ries of hot flushes, for­get­ful­ness, mood swings, wrin­kles, night sweats and choco­late binges, all set to songs from the baby boomer era, with a few tweaks here and there, such as The Great Pre­tender, Only You, Heat Wave and I Will Sur­vive.

Start­ing out as an off-Broad­way play in a mod­est the­atre, the mu­si­cal has since taken the world by storm. This Aus­tralian pro­duc­tion is di­rected by Patty Ben­der and stars Maria Mercedes, An­drea Creighton, Michelle Collins and Jen­nifer Levy, and prom­ises a comedic and mu­si­cal ex­pe­ri­ence about go­ing through ‘ the change’ and the power of sis­ter­hood.

Menopause The Mu­si­cal will be staged on Thurs­day, June 24, at Twin Towns. The mati­nee per­for­mance starts at 2pm and costs $ 35 per per­son and the evening per­for­mance starts at 7.30pm and costs $ 37 per per­son.
