Queanbeyan Players is excited to announce auditions are open for our upcoming February 2024 production, Next To Normal. Next to Normal, with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal was also chosen as “one of the year’s ten best shows” by critics around the world.

Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing 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.

Queanbeyan Players will be holding a pre-audition workshop on the 16th August at The Royal Hotel QBN, where you can ask any questions you have regarding auditions and find out more information about the show.

Auditions can be booked here now.
