Stepping Out

LA Stage Co.'s 'Normal' runs through June 23

The Los Altos Stage Company production of the musical “Next to Normal” is scheduled to close June 23 at Bus Barn Theater.

With book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, “Normal” explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. The musical won three Tony Awards in 2009 and the Pulitzer Prize in 2010.

The Goodmans appear to be a typical American family: dad is an architect; mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; and their daughter and son are bright, wisecracking teens. But their lives are anything but normal; the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years.

Janie Scott directs “Normal.” The cast of six features Ella Ruth Francis, Joey McDaniel, Mitchell Mosley, David Saber, Anthony Stephens and Jillian Toby-Cummings.

Performances are slated 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays.

Tickets are $20-$38.
