Presented by: indie women productions
Centrepointe Studio Theatre
October 20 - October 24, 2015

You do not want to miss the Ottawa area encore production of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning rock musical, next to normal! Last year’s production played to wildly enthusiastic sold-out audiences. Ottawa’s indie women productions debuts at Centrepointe Studio Theatre with this unforgettable musical tour de force. The Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health, recipient of $15,000 from last October’s production, will again be a beneficiary of funds raised.

next to normal is a ground-breaking contemporary musical about a family in crisis struggling for “normalcy” and ultimately questioning the very meaning of what is normal. It’s an honest and brave account of a mother’s search for wellness and how her illness affects her family. Diana Goodman, a thirty-something suburban wife and mother, struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the effects that her illness and the attempts to alleviate it have on her family.

The Broadway hit musical, written by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, also addresses such issues as grief, suicide, drug abuse and the challenges facing contemporary psychiatry. Despite the sombre subject matter, it is a story full of hope and humour, told through a soaring rock musical score performed by six of the region’s most accomplished musical theatre performers and an exquisite six-piece orchestra.
