The spotlight of this musical focuses on Wednesday Addams, the princess of darkness, who asks her father, Gomez, to keep the secret of her love interest from her mother, Morticia, whom he shares everything with. When The Addams Family and the family of Wednesday’s love interest meet for dinner, madness and hilarity unfold.
“This is an oddly wonderful show. Despite its Gothic tone, the Addams Family checks all of the boxes for classic, Golden-Age musical fun. Beneath the monster-movie motif burbles the familiar impetuous whirlwind of young love and the fond and affectionate misunderstandings that families can fall into,” said Bruce Cohen, director and assistant professor of theatre/dance. “Indeed, for a show that has mined the pop culture ocean so deeply for inspiration, this is also a unique story of adorable characters who are well supported with an excellent score by award-winner Andrew Lippa and a very witty book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. We have a stage full of energetic, young performers, lovely voices under Robert Gehrenbeck’s expert direction and captivating dancers translating Piper Morgan Hayes’ effervescent choreography. Thank you for joining us for all the creepy kooky, mysteriously spooky and charming, heartwarming oookiness of it all!”
