Next to Normal: In Concert
March 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$32
GTC is super proud and excited to announce our first show for 2023: Next to Normal (in concert). With Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey, Music by Tom Kitt, and licensed exclusively by Music Theatre International (Australasia). All performance materials supplied by Hal Leonard Australia.
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 GTC performers and team 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.
