On Tuesday, April 12th at 7:00pm, Norfield Congregational Church’s Senior Minister, the Rev. Dr. Bernard R. Wilson, will be the featured speaker during the post performance talk back.

We hope to see you there!
About Next to Normal
The musical lifts the veil on family loss and individual responses to crisis and endurance. It pushes the boundaries of contemporary musical theater in an attempt to de-stigmatize mental health illness and raise awareness.
Director Marcos Santana has cast four actors of color (the original production featured an all-white cast). This production examines how metal illness specifically affects communities of color.
