WHY SEE THE NEXT TO NORMAL?  To just once, step away from the saccharine sweet musicals they have seen over and over and experience the most incredibly written script of its time.  To face a little reality that we as human beings turn our heads to so many times.  To maybe understand a little better the lives of the individuals and their loved ones, who struggle mental illness every second of every day of their lives. To start conversations in their own homes, with their own loved ones and friends which I hope someday will make the subject of mental illness a little more palatable.

Audiences should enjoy art, but it has to occasionally challenge them the way this show does in order to be truly life-changing. That’s why you see this show- it reminds everyone that they’re human beings, and that that is a wonderful truth.

THAC PREVIEW: Next to Normal

Hello THAC Friends & Followers,

The next main stage production in THAC’s 2014 – 2015 Season will be Next to Normal (N2N), music by Tom Kitt, book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey (interview below). Winner of the 2010 Pultzer Prize for drama, this contemporary rock-musical explores how one suburban household copes with love and crisis. With electrifying LIVE music and lyrics, N2N shows how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family’s world intact. Ben Brantley of the New York Times n2n-webcalled it, “A brave, breathtaking new musical. It is something much more than a fee-good musical: it is a feel everything musical.”

N2N seems to be a critic favorite! Nominated for eleven 2009 Tony Awards, N2N took three for Best Original Score, Best Orchestration, and Best Performance for a leading Actress in a Musical for Alice Ripley. As I mentioned previously, N2N also won the 2010 Pultzer Prize, becoming the eighth musical in history to receive the honor. Winner of the the Outer Critics’ Circle Award for Outstanding Score and nomincated for Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Actress (Alice Ripley) and Outstanding Score, N2N is sure to please patrons of THAC.

Featured in this production is Margie Lamb, reprising her role as Diana after performing at the Aurora Fox for Ignite Theatre. Daniel Langhoff cast in the role of Dan, returns to Town Hall most recently seen as Daddy Warbucks in the 2013 production of Annie. Jacquie Jo Billings is also returning to THAC in the role of Natalie. You may remember her as Thea in last season’s performance of Spring Awakening. Making their THAC debuts, are Josh Bess as Gabriel, Ethan Knowels as Henry, and Jared Ming as Dr Madden/ Dr Fine. Understudying the roles of Gabriel and Henry is Carter Edward Smith; also seen in THAC’s productions of Spring Awakening, Music Man, and 9 to 5. Carter is scheduled for perform 2/26/2015 for the role of Henry and 3/5/2015 for the role of Gabriel.

N2N is directed by Nick Sugar, Henry Award winner for THAC’s 2012 production of The Who’s Tommy and 2010 production of RENT, and most recently seen directing and choreographing Anything Goes for Town Hall in 2014. Donna Debreceni (2012 Henry Award winner for Outstanding Musical Direction for The Who’s Tommy) returns as musical director leading a live band with keyboards onstage. Joining her onstage are Austin Hein (Bass), Kevin E. Johnson (Cello), David Paul (Violin), Scott Alan Smith (Guitars), and Tag Worley (Drums/ Percussion).

THAC’s production of Next to Normal open’s Friday 2/13 and runs through Sunday 3/15 (2015). We hope you’ll join us for what promises to be a truly moving performance and rockin’ time at the theatre.

THAC PREVIEW: The Clean House

Hello THAC Friends, Family, & Followers!

The Clean House is THAC’s one & only straight play this season, among 5 other musicals in our 2014-2015 Season Main Stage Productions. Written by Sarah Ruhl, this romantic comedy follows the lovely Brazilian Matilde, an aspiring stand-up comedian and housekeeper who’s more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than cleaning house! The story unfolds in “metaphysical Connecticut,” mostly in the home of married couple Dr Lane and Dr Charles. This theatrical and wildly funny play is a whimsical and poignant look at class, comedy and the true nature of love.

 The Clean House has received radiant reviews from a number of critics.  Variety called the play a “…wondrously mad and moving work…” and Charles Isherwood of The New York Times dubbed it a deeply romantic comedy, “…visionary, tinged with fantasy, extravagant in feeling, maybe a little nuts.” Peter Marks, reviewing the Woolly Mammoth Theatre production, wrote: “As with most original voices, it takes a while to tune into Ruhl’s wavelength. Once connected, though, you commune warmly with her funny and compassionate sense of life’s metamorphosing rewards and punishments.”Entertainment Weekly magazine named the New York production one of the top ten theatrical attractions of the year in 2006.

Winning the 2004 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, awarded annually to the best English-language play written by a woman, and a Pulitzer Prize finalist – THAC is kicking and screaming for opening night to see how legendary director Robert Wells has adapted this story for the Town Hall Arts Center stage!

Join THAC JAN 9 – FEB 1, 2015 for The Clean House!

#COGivesDay: 5 Years Of Giving

CGD 2014_Master(WORKING)

Dear THAC Friends & Followers,

After a long week of killer deals and steals from your favorite retailers, it is time to reflect on what the holidays are truly about… the spirit of giving! Town Hall Arts Center is one of the many non-profit organizations to participate in Colorado Gives Day, an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving.

Town Hall Arts Center would like to graciously thank Community First Foundation and FirstBank for their partnership in creating the largest incentive fund in history through Colorado Gives Day – totaling 1 million dollars! As one of the largest giving-day incentive funds in the country, the program proportionally increases the value of every dollar donated to Town Hall Arts Center. According to a Colorado Gives Day Press Release,

“If a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund. The 2014 Incentive Fund is 300 percent larger than last year.”

– Kayla Arnesen, Community First Foundation

Colorado Gives Day 2014 is Tuesday, December 9th! On behalf of our actors (both adult and child), designers, directors, teachers, and staff – we would be honored if you could consider a gift to Town Hall Arts Center this year in the form of a Colorado Gives Donation!  It would mean the world to everyone who makes THAC Productions possible, who are all working hard to bring the live theater experience to the Denver metro area! During the past year, over 33,000 students, seniors and adults attended our main stage performances, and preview performances of each main stage musical were attended by over 1,050 underprivileged individuals.  In addition, we served over 3,000 children with our educational programs.  Many of those children received scholarships or tuition reductions because of the support of individuals such as you!

Donors are encouraged to join the movement to “give where you live” and raise millions for your favorite Colorado nonprofits. Colorado Gives Day is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round, online giving website featuring nearly 1,500 Colorado nonprofit organizations. THAC will also be participating in the #COGivesDay Rally on MONDAY 12/08/14 at the capitol building in Downtown Denver!

THANK YOU for considering THAC while donating this season!

Happy Holidays,

COREY BROWN | @COREYLENBROWN
