Prize-winning drama exposes suburbia’s veneer

Panic Productions will present “Next To Normal,” a Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical by Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, through June 17 at Hillcrest Center for the Arts, 403 W. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks.

Show times are 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday.

The play explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. Dad’s an architect. Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal. Their daughter and son are bright, wisecracking teens.
