September 30:  Lilies of the Valley joins with Bosom Buddies to "Tie the Ribbon" between Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month (September) and Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October).  The newly renovated Merrimack Theater will dedicate the 2:00pm performance of Menopause the Musical on September 30 to Tie the Ribbon, with a lobby reception to follow.  Both organizations encourage women of all ages to enjoy this comedic show and wear teal and/or pink in recognition of gynecologic and breast cancer awareness.  Educational materials will be provided.
