Initial casting has been announced for the San Diego Musical Theatre's upcoming production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Next to Normal, which will be presented Sept. 26-Oct. 12 at The North Park Theatre.

Directed by Nick DeGruccio, the cast will be led by Bets Malone (Diana Goodman), Robert J. Townsend (Dan Goodman) and Eddie Egan (Gabriel “Gabe” Goodman).

Next to Normal features book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt.

The musical, according to press notes, "tells the story of a mother, Diane Goodman, who struggles with bipolar disorder and the effect that her illness has on her family. This contemporary musical is an emotional power-house that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life. With provocative lyrics and a thrilling score, this musical shows how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family’s world intact."

The music director is Don Le Master.

Show times will be Thursday at 7:30 PM, Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 2 PM.

The North Park Theatre is located at 2891 University Avenue, San Diego. For individual or group tickets, contact the Administrative Office at (858) 560-5740 or visit SDMT online at www.sdmt.org.
