About the show: The 2010 Pulitzer Prize winner for drama, "Next to Normal" is a deeply moving rock musical and raw account of a family dealing with mental illness, tragedy and the realities of modern society. An overly medicated mother tries to cope with bipolar disorder as her family struggles to maintain normalcy in their suburban home for her sanity and their own. A hard-driving rock score with tear-inducing ballads make this show unlike any other. Gripping and heart-wrenchingly real, "Next to Normal" is groundbreaking contemporary theater.

Disclaimer: The show contains strong language and adult situations and is intended for mature audiences. Not suitable for children, this musical contains heavy themes, drug use and profanity.

Contact Anna Kirshenbaum to purchase tickets to either show. Tickets will be available for pick up in the Public Relations Department in the 4230 Building.

The Omaha Community Playhouse is located at 6915 Cass St. in Omaha.
