While the Normal Theater does not share the common history of many early 20th Century cinemas that began their lives as theatre or vaudeville spaces, the acoustics of the space are perfect for live voices or instruments. A great listening room, the theater is home to many different performances, with more and more being booked all the time.
One of the key aspects of the Normal Theater's mission is to act as a community venue. Vaudeville Mondays, which take place every other Monday at 7:00pm, offer the perfect showcase for area performers of all disciplines. These events are free to attend, and are appropriate for all ages. Head over to the Vaudeville Mondays page for more information on this ongoing series, including how to audition.
Stone & Snow, Oct. 13, 2017
The Normal Theater presents an evening of of music on Oct. 13th 2017 starring STONE & SNOW with SHERWOOD FOREST and SARAH QUAH.
The combination of singer-songwriters Karen Bridges' soulful, soaring vocals and Clint Thomson's roots-influenced guitar results in a folk sound that can only be described as their own. Whether it is an intimate show in an historic manor, on stage at a local watering hole, or playing for crowds at music festivals, STONE & SNOW has evolved into a more electric sound while maintaining their folk roots as they play shows across the Midwest.
