Award-Winning Theatre Nebula
Announces Auditions for the World Premiere Production
of Christopher Bibby’s new crazy comedy




WORLD PREMIERE! Theatre Nebula continues to bring you the best new quality theatrical literature with this hilarious large cast comedy by the up and coming playwright, Christopher Bibby. A neurotic psychologist is forced to teach his cad brother how to empathize with other people, “so the brother can pick up chicks.” But along the way, the psychologist is forced to practice what he preaches when the lady in question falls for him instead. Scaring the Normals is a witty comedy of mistaken identity and finding oneself.
