Next to Normal

Start Date: January 31, 2020

End Date: February 16, 2020

Location: Germantown Community Theatre

LEARN MORE

Next to Normal, with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal was also chosen as “one of the year’s ten best shows” by critics around the country, including The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and The New York Times.

Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.

This deeply moving piece of theatre provides a wonderful opportunity for performers to explore dramatic material and showcase vocal talents with an energetic pop/rock score. Next to Normal is an emotional powerhouse that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life.

You’re invited to an extra special celebration!

Join us for the Page Robbins Winter Gala on Saturday, February 1, from 6:30 pm to midnight at The Guest House at Graceland.  The evening’s theme will be Silver Anniversary – Celebrating 25 Years of the Best Days Ever.  In 2020, Page Robbins Adult Day Center turns 25 years old! We’ll be reflecting on the past and shining on towards the future as we raise funds to benefit our clients with memory loss and their families.

The Winter Gala is Page Robbins’s largest single fundraiser and is a vital source of funding. Page Robbins offers unique and uplifting weekday care for those with memory loss. We also provide free support and social services for caregivers. Participants at Page Robbins have good days filled with music, art, games, reminiscing, fellowship, and fun, while their caregivers get a break. Client families pay about half the cost of care, so we must raise $710,000 to keep the cost of care affordable to client families.

Tickets are $150 each.  A table includes 10 seats and can be purchased for $1,500.  Ticket price increases after January 13, so be sure and get your tickets today!

We have a block of rooms set aside at The Guest House for those who wish to stay the night. Be sure to book your room before January 1 to receive the special rate.
