Book, Music & Lyrics by Bob Walton and Jim Walton

“Fall-out-of-your-seat-funny - hilarious.”
“I laughed so hard I wet myself.”
“Sprightly, funny… silly”
“Very funny… a perfect night out.”
“A well-crafted lampoon of mid-life foibles.”
“MID-LIFE is well worth remembering… if you can!”
“WARNING! This show is guaranteed to cause laugh-lines!”
“Brash and refreshing!”
“…Comedic genius. I promise, you will laugh.”
“This musical revue is a little stroke of genius!”
“Clever and witty!”

“WARNING! This show is guaranteed to cause laugh-lines!”

MID-LIFE! The Crisis Musical

Three men and three women make up the cast of this wacky musical that takes a comic look at the “age old” conditions and situations faced in MID-LIFE! From reading glasses and mammograms to weekend warriors and proctology exams - all are lampooned with a Saturday Night Live non-sensibility. Everyone will relate to this hilarious, and at times, touching musical about the curiosities and inevitabilities of middle-age. If you bought some Gingko-Biloba, but can’t remember where you put it - then you’re ready for MID-LIFE!

Set Requirements

The original production at The Chanhassen Dinner Theatres used a playing area stage level with a revolve to allow for quick set changes. The piano player sat on an upper level, which the actors could access via stairways on either side. This production also used a series of projections that transition between scenes.
