NEXT TO NORMAL Comes to the Main Stage at Spreckels in Rohnert Park, Jan 9-18

Hailed by critics, audiences and nominated for nine Theatre Bay Area Awards - the 2014 Theatre at Large, Marin County production of the indie-rock musical "Next to Normal" has a special encore presentation of six performances on the main stage at Spreckels in Rohnert Park.

A veritable roller-coaster of a show, this Tony Award, Pulitzer Prize-winning musical (featuring music by Tom Kitt, with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey) follows the story of a woman whose bi-polar disorder has dramatic effects on her family.

With soaring melodies and an emotionally charged score, "Next to Normal" features the full power of musical theater to tell a relevant, transcendent story that leaves audiences riveted, breathless and profoundly moved. Parental guidance suggested for language and adult themes.

The production is directed by Kim Bromley with musical direction by Lucas Sherman and choreography by Alison Peltz. The main stage set design is by David Shirk. The Spreckels presentation features the original Theatre at Large cast - Alison Peltz, Anthony Martinez, Julianne Bretan, Fernando Siu, Sean O'Brien and R.J. Castaneda.

Performances are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays from Jan. 9 to Jan. 18, 2015 at Spreckels Performing Arts Center, Codding Theatre, 5409 Snyder Lane, Rohnert Park, Calif.
