Jimmy Jemain, who won TV’s ’Stars in Their Eyes’ 30 years ago, is widely recognised as the number one Cliff tribute artist, with Cliff himself commenting “Spot on, a bit too good”. The Daily Mirror write that Jemain “Talks, walks, looks and sings like Cliff Richard”. As The Shadows played an important part in the early years, no show reflecting on the career of Sir Cliff would be complete without some of their music performed by a sensational five piece band the Undercover Shadows.

It’s our brand-new show, Cruising Through Menopause. In the hysterical sequel to our smash-hit Menopause The Musical®, we fast forward five years to catch up with the same four characters for tales of their lives, loves and losses as they set off on the high seas.

Hot flushes, mood swings, memory lapses, weight gain – these are a few of our favourite menopausal things!  Cruising Through Menopause is a hilarious, heartfelt, reassuring and unflinching look at the joys of menopause and friendship.  When your life is a bumpy ride full of twists and turns, it’s hard to find true friends.  But step on board and we’ll take you on a trip of self-discovery, love and friendship all backed by a soundtrack of brand-new toe-tapping parodied hits!

For these four ladies the menopause was not the beginning of the end, but the beginning of a beautiful friendship where love conquers, and friendships never fail.

So, all aboard and we’ll have you laughing, singing and maybe even dancing on-stage, as you join us for Menopause The Musical 2 – Cruising Through Menopause.
