Gift of Grain

Monday, September 15th 2014 - All Day

A word to our farmers about making a special gift – a gift of grain.   Find ways that you can both decrease my tax bill and still help the Salvation Army meet the increased demands of those in need, especially this time of year.  This year, before you sell your grain, call The Salvation Army at 1-800-274-0628, and discover the benefits a gift of grain can make. You will be pleasantly surprised at both the tax savings and how good you will feel.  To make a gift of grain, call today, 1-800-274-0628.  On behalf of The Salvation Army, thank you for helping us Do the Most Good.

University of South Dakota Department of Theatre

Wednesday, October 1st 2014 - 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm at University of South Dakota
414 E. Clark St

The University of South Dakota Department of Theatre opens its season with the musical “Next to Normal.” Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 26 and Saturday, Sept. 27, and Oct. 1-4; and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 28 and Sunday, Oct. 5 at the Wayne S. Knutson Theatre on the USD campus.

With music by Tom Kitt, and book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey, this Tony Award® and Pulitzer Prize winning musical is a dynamic rock musical that explores suburbia, mental health and loss. For 16 years, Diana Goodman has suffered from bipolar disorder and hallucinations. Her medication has made her numb to emotions and life, but one day Diana flushes her medication. The family has only begun to live with all that has occurred within the house walls and what happens next is all too real and heart wrenching. With memorable songs such as “Just Another Day,” “You Don’t Know,” “I’m Alive,” “Catch Me I’m Falling,” and “I Am the One,” “Next to Normal” is not a musical that tries to hide the truth behind mental health and the loss of a loved one but brings it to the forefront and highlights just how detrimental, frustrating and frightening the disorder can be.

USD’s production of “Next to Normal” is double cast, which means audiences will have an opportunity to see two different casts explore and present the characters, themes, ideas, and emotions found in the musical. Special discussions will follow the performances on Sept. 26, Oct. 1 and Oct. 4. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for senior citizens 62 and older, $10 for K-12 students and non-USD students with ID, and $5 for USD students with ID. Tickets can be reserved from noon to 5 p.m. by calling the USD Theatre Box Office at (605) 677-5400 or online at www.usd.edu/theatre.
