This highly entertaining musical features an original story that is every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
The show is suitable for kids through adults and is a magical theatre experience for the whole family.
Mark Phillips, Director for The Addams Family, says ” This show is fun, of course, but it offers more than just two hours of entertainment. I wanted to point out the deeper stuff that’s easy to miss. Morticia finds comfort that “Death is Just Around the Corner” (which seems a bit depressing, to be honest.) It is life and love, however, that will always triumph. That is a message that we are delighted to share with you.”
The cast includes Nicholas Bradley as Gomez, Cassidy Jackson as Morticia and Eden Hill as Wednesday. Pugsley is played by Mackenzie Fox, Fester played by Caitlin Zook, Grandma played by Grace Levan, Lurch played by Dovea Gogo, Mal played by Noah Engel, Alice played by Ryann Davis and Lucas played by Chris Howie.
The creative team includes Mark Phillips (director), Nathan Stelter (stage manager), Halli Hill (music director), Stacy Gear (choreographer), Lonnie Daniels & Melissa Smith (scenic builder), Tim Guth (sound and lighting designer) and Andrea Hubler (costume designer and marketing). The show is produced by Tom Hubler and Melissa Fogle. This production is additionally supported by Sabrina Sedlacko (asst stage manager), Teri Bradley (tickets & marketing) and Liz Engel (house manager).
