All productions will take place at The Edge Theater - 5451 N.Broadway, Chicago, IL 60640

The popular rock musical is BACK!  We were shut down during opening week of this wonderful production last year and cannot wait to put it on for live audiences.

Next to Normal is a 2008 American rock musical with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt. The story centers on a mother who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the effects that managing her illness has on her family.

Next to Normal is an emotional powerhouse that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life.

Opens Thursday July 15th - July 25th
Thurs - Sat at 7:30pm
Sat and Sun at 3pm

The original "Mean Girls" musical...80s style.  Heathers was a cult classic film and now they have turned it into a dark comedy rock musical.  A little edgy, a little dark, a lotta fun.  This musical is far enough into the summer where it will sell-out quickly!

Opens Friday August 27 - September 12th
Thurs - Sat at 7:30pm
Sat and Sun at 3pm
