Next To Normal
Opening August 7 and running through August 16
Music by Tom Kitt
Next To Normal is an unflinching look at a suburban family struggling with the effects of mental illness. Winner of three 2009 TONY Awards including Best Musical Score, and winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next To Normal was also chosen as “one of the year’s ten best shows” by critics around the country, including The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and The New York Times. Dad’s an architect, Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal, and their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, making them appear to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal, because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next To Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart. This deeply moving piece of theatre in infused with an energetic pop/rock score by Brian Yorkey. Next To Normal is an emotional powerhouse that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life in today’s world. "...Heart melting...sentsitively crafted show...something inadvertantly powerful in the music and story, which have been meticulously woven together by the songwriting team of Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey...beautiful songs that get to the heart of this deceptively complex story--and simply get to the heart."- Washington Post
Due to competing weddings in the area, Tony and Tina have decided to postpone their wedding until next season...please check back with Theatre Baton Rouge Fall 2015."
Auditions for "The Miracle Worker" will be held Saturday, August 29 at 10:00am. Auditions are by appointment so please call the Box Office at 225-924-6496.

By: William Shakespeare

This is an hour long adaptation of Shakespeare's play about the relationships between men and women. Baptista, a rich Paduan merchant, announces that his fair young daughter, Bianca, will remain unwed until her older sister, Katharina, a hellish shrew, has wed. Lucentio, a student and the son of a wealthy Pisan merchant, has fallen in love with Bianca. He poses as a tutor of music and poetry to gain entrance to the Baptista household and to be near Bianca. Meanwhile, Petruchio, a fortune-hunting scoundrel from Verona, arrives in Padua, hoping to capture a wealthy wife. Hortensio, another suitor of Bianca, directs Petruchio's attention to Katharina. When Hortensio warns him about Katharina's scolding tongue and fiery temper, Petruchio is challenged and resolves to capture her love. Hortensio and another suitor of Bianca, Gremio, agree to cover Petruchio's costs as he pursues Katharina.
