The groundbreaking and award-­‐winning musical Next to Normal explores how one suburban family copes with crisis. With powerful lyrics and an electrifying pop-­‐rock score of more than 30 songs, this intense, emotional and ultimately hopeful musical aims right for the heart with its story of a family coming to terms with its past and bravely facing its future. Creative Arts Theater is bringing this amazing rock musical to Riverside for the first time, October 16th – 26th at the Box Theater 3635 Market St., in Riverside.

Director Robert K. Blomker II has brought together six wonderful actors & actresses to bring this Pulitzer Prize winning musical to life they include: Cherie Glisson as Diana, Shane Churchill as Dan, Keith Glisson as Gabe, Ammiel Hamrick as Natalie, Christopher Michael Rose as Henry, and Patrick Carlisle Croft as Dr. Fine/Dr. Madden. In addition to winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2010, Next to Normal was nominated for eleven 2009 Tony Awards and won three, Best Original Score, Best Orchestration and Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for Alice Ripley.

This isn’t the first time the Creative Arts Theater crew has put this powerhouse musical together either, they’re bringing this team back together after an amazing run this February at the High Desert Center for the Arts in Victorville! “It’s really wonderful that we’re able to bring this amazing musical to a new region where there is a lot more outlets for theatre and the arts! I hope that we get to touch the hearts of the residents of Riverside the way we touched the hearts of the High Desert,” said Blomker.

Audience members gushed about the original run of Next to Normal on social media galore including this: “Thanks to the cast…for presenting a very touching and moving presentation of the musical – next to normal. The musical is very eye opening in the depiction of mental health issues; family; marriage: communication; how we treat those with depression; love; hope; and for me, most importantly- how does a family move on after the death of a child. Touching performances and haunting and honest.”

Creative Arts Theater brings Next to Normal to Riverside on October 16th through 26th! Thursday – Saturday: 7:30pm. Sunday: 2:30pm. You can purchase tickets online at CreativeArtsTheater.com or by calling 760-963-3236. Tickets are $22 General Admission & $20 Students and Seniors Admission.
