"There's a difference between being happy and just thinking you're happy." ~Next to Normal

Body, memory and trauma collide in this Pulitzer Prize-winning musical exploring the collateral effects of mental illness. Set to an electrifying score of rock music, this production—a collaboration between the Theatre and Dance departments—probes the reverberations of buried secrets and a craving for normalcy from the perspective of a middle class suburban family.

Marla Schulz directs and choreographs a cast of CU Theatre & Dance Department's outstanding musical performers. Ticket sell fast, but in the dynamic Charlotte York Irey Theatre, every audience member gets a front row experience to this award-winning musical.

"Next to Normal" is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
