Harris Center suffers from hot flashes

By From page B5 | January 08, 2014

Four women at a lingerie sale with nothing in common but a black lace bra and memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much sex and … much more.

Don’t miss “Menopause The Musical” at Harris Center for the Arts in Folsom, Jan. 15-17.

This hilarious musical parody — which has been performed before millions of women in more than 450 American cities — is set to classic tunes from the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s. A sisterhood is forged between these diverse women, as they realize that menopause is no longer The Silent Passage.

“Most women know intuitively that every other woman is experiencing hot flashes or night sweats,” said author Jeanie C. Linders. “There is always a close friend or two who can sympathize or identify, 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.”

“Menopause the Musical” comes to Harris Center for the Arts Jan. 15-17; performances are scheduled at 7 p.m. Wednesday through Friday with a 2 p.m. matinee on Thursday. Tickets are $25 to $45 each with premium seats available for $55. Purchase tickets online at harriscenter.net or from Harris Center ticket office at (916) 608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. Harris Center is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, facing East Bidwell Street.
