Live Events

The Normal Theater is a fantastic, intimate space for a live concert or performance. With a maximum seating capacity of 390, the theater is in that "just right" zone of being not too-big and not too-small.

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.

We look forward to sharing with you some fantastic live events this year!

What if the very things we get teased for can actually make us strong?  That sure would come in handy for Delaney, Will, and Maddie, the charter members of the Nerd Club, Not only do they get teased -a lot- but they also appear to be the last remaining hope to defeat the evil Dream Snatcher.  Right now, the Nerd Club is hiding in an abandoned Diner, frantically recording their hopes and dreams into journals in order to keep them safe.  Why?  The evil Dream Snatcher is fast-approaching.  He goes around stealing dreams and feeding them into his his diabolical Mash Box where they are pulverized into Gray Spray.  One puff of the Gray Spray and even memories of dreams are gone forever.  It would take Super Hero strength to defeat the Dream Snatcher but the Nerd Club is equipped with only their rather geeky skills and some kitchen gadgets left behind in the Diner.  Could that possibly be enough?  Even now the Dream Snatcher is loading the Town's dreams into Mash Box which he'll turn on at midnight.  It's now or never, Nerd Club!  Do you hear the clock.  It's ticking! 

This event is free to attend.
