Event Title: Menopause The Musical
Where: Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
Tuesday, May 3, 2011
Time: 7:30 PM EST
HOT FLASH!
Menopause The Musical
RETURNS TO GAINESVILLE
Celebrating 10 Years of "The Change"
Opens May 3rd at The Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

It's time to kick-up those high heels! The Off-Broadway and international hit sensation Menopause The Musical® is returning to Phillips Center for the Performing Arts to celebrate its 10 years of "The Change!" The limited engagement opens on May 3rd.

The hilarious musical is set in NYC's Bloomingdale's store, where four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale.

The cast laughs at their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. A sisterhood is created between these diverse women as they realize that menopause is no longer The Silent Passage! It is a stage in every woman's life that is perfectly normal!

Menopause The Musical® is the work of writer and producer, Jeanie Linders. The laughter-filled 90-minute production includes parodies from the classics of the '60s and '70s and '80s. Disco hit "Stayin' Alive" becomes "Stayin' Awake," Motown favorite "My Girl" is transformed into "My Thighs," "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" switches to "In the Guest Room or on the Sofa, My Husband Sleeps at Night," and "Puff The Magic Dragon" becomes the anthem to exercise, "Puff, My God I'm Draggin'".

Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, writer and producer Jeanie Linders created the show as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived "The Change". "Most women know intuitively that every other woman is experiencing hot flashes or night sweats," says Linders. "There is always a close friend or two who can sympathize or identify with her, but when they are sitting in a theatre with hundreds of other women, all laughing and shouting‚ 'That's me! That's me on stage!' they know what they are experiencing is normal. They aren't alone…or crazy. It becomes a sisterhood."

2011 Florida Folk Festival
May 27 - 29, 2011
Welcome to the 59th Florida Folk Festival, a three-day celebration of the music, dance, stories, crafts and food that make Florida unique. From Irish fiddle tunes and kumquat pie, to the wide varieties of music brought by immigrants, the state's cultural heritage reflects the lives of generations of Florida families and communities. Throughout the Memorial Day weekend more than 300 performances give voice and meaning to Florida's heritage.
Folk artists and tradition-bearers presented each year in the Folklife Area reflect research and field documentation conducted by the Florida Department of State's Folklife Program. The 2011 Folklife Area celebrates the diverse cultures of the state's Panhandle coastline counties. Be sure to visit the Folklife Area to experience the compelling traditions and savor the flavors, sights, and sounds, of some of Florida's oldest and newest cultural communities.
At the Florida Folk Festival you can sit with the masters who keep cultural traditions alive. In jam sessions, demonstrations and workshops, try your own hand at playing mandolin, telling stories, or making a pine needle basket. Learn how to collect your family's history, call a square dance, or the importance of native plant and animal species. Take a shopping excursion and visit with Florida's traditional and contemporary craftsmen. Then dine on collard greens and cornbread, chicken pilau and hoppin' john, shrimp gumbo, barbecue, curries, gyros and lime fizzes. As the sun sets, settle in for concerts by moonlight or dance the night away at the Heritage Stage. At the end of the day you'll have discovered new corners of the state from the people who call Florida home.
Join us along the Suwannee River at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, home of the Florida Folk Festival for 59 years. The Festival is presented under the auspices of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Recreation and Parks.
