The View From Here Theatre Performance takes place December 3-5

By Steven Geller - Director of Media and Public Relations

The Normandale Community College Theatre Department performance The View From Here will run on December 3-5 in the Black Box Theatre.

The performances are on Thursday, December 3, Friday, December 4 and Saturday, December 5, and they all start at 7:30 p.m. The ASL Interpreted show will take place on December 4.  

In The View From Here, Misery loves company! Fern an agoraphobic woman in her late thirties, is waiting on a sign from above, telling her she can embrace the outside world. Along with a dysfunctional group of oddball friends and family, Fern's fears are put to the test and hilarity ensues. The View From Here sheds an insightful light on the idea of individuality and how we can help "cure" each other's insecurities through love and support.  

Adult admission is $10, while senior/staff/student tickets will be $5. Season tickets are available for a discount. Please call 952-358-8884 to make reservations or email at  

The following are descriptions of the two other performances that will take place during the 2015-16 academic year:  

The Dining Room: The Dining Room is a thought-provoking play that revolves around an artifact slowly losing its importance in the American home - the dining room table. The action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes - some funny, some touching, some painful. The varied scenes are filled with identifiable characters of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity - leaving us to question how we nurture those deepest human connections when things are moving so fast around us.  

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee: Six spellers enter, one speller leaves, and the losers get a juice box! The Tony Award-winning musical comedy is the story of six young middle schoolers in the throes of puberty who learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. This hilarious tale of over-achievers' angst chronicles the experience of these adolescent outsiders as they (and a few lucky audience members) compete for the spelling championship of a lifetime.
