The Yates Theatre (Lethbridge, AB)
Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens. They appear to make up the perfect nuclear family. Yet life is anything but normal when we learn that Mom has been struggling with manic depression for the last 16 years. Next to Normal uses powerful songs and music to take audiences on a heartfelt journey with a look into the with love, sympathy and heart.
