Breast cancer survivors are cast in 'Menopause the Musical'
HARRISBURG >> A cast of breast cancer survivors and co-survivors have taken the stage to present "Menopause The Musical: The Survivor Tour," which will benefit Susan G. Komen during its tour this year.
GFour Productions and Susan G. Komen have joined to launch the survivors' version of the musical, which will come to Whitaker Center Sunoco Performance Theater, 222 Market St., for six performances Sept. 16-20.
Tickets are available now at whitakercenter.org or by calling 717-214-2787. Tickets are $37.50, $42.50, $47.50 and $57.50. The production will donate no less than $2 for each ticket sold to Susan G. Komen, which since 1982 has invested more than $2.6 billion in research, screening, treatment, education and support programs for people affected by breast cancer.
"Menopause The Musical" is set in a department store, where four women at a lingerie sale have nothing in common but a black lace bra and memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much sex and more! Singing along to classic tunes from the 1960s, '70s and '80s, the cast forms a sisterhood with the audience.
For more than a decade, Menopause The Musical has worked to inspire and support women dealing with life after "The Change."
"Menopause has always been a cause-based show," said director Seth Greenleaf. "The cause was helping women see that what they are experiencing is perfectly normal, and that they are not alone. The Susan G. Komen partnership increases the importance of our purpose because now we're not just talking about life affirming, but life saving. We're deeply proud to be a part of this effort."
