AVENTURA, FL: – GFour Productions has completed casting for Menopause The Musical’s limited run at the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center. The production will run from October 23rd through October 28th only.
Linda Boston will play ‘Professional Woman, South Florida native Ingrid Cole will take on the role of ‘Earth Mother’, Terri Dixon will play the ‘Iowa Housewife’, and Kathy St. George has been cast as the ‘Soap Star’. Three of the four women have performed in the musical previously, however the Aventura run will be Terri Dixon’s first time in the production.
Although the Menopause The Musical debuted over seventeen years ago in Orlando, Florida, the show is as relevant today as it was in 2001. Not only does it entertainingly deal with the issues all women inevitably face as they navigate ‘the change’ – hot flashes, body changes, and short term memory loss just to to name a few – it addresses the larger meaning of what it means to be a woman, and delivers an empowering message to women of all ages: Take charge of your life, celebrate the now, and look to the future.
Chock full of clever wit and humor, great songs and exhilarating dance numbers, the laughter filled production consistently inspires its audiences – both men and women – to jump out of their seats and sing along to the catchy parodies of classic pop songs of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s.
Menopause The Musical® is recognized as the longest-running scripted production in Las Vegas and continues to entertain nightly at Harrah’s Las Vegas. The show recently celebrated its 5000th performance there. The much-loved musical has entertained audiences across the country in more than 450 U.S. cities, nearly 300 international cities, and a total of 15 countries.
