A New Musical Comedy
Everyone is familiar with THE ADDAMS FAMILY right? ( Duh , duh , duh , duh, click ,click!) This new musical comedy version of the well known TV programme features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare! Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’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. Join Lurch, Uncle Fester, Grandma and all the extended Addams family in this nutty, musical comedy. You may simply die – laughing!

The Addams Family is the end result of this year’s Senior Summer Workshop. The group of 16-24 year olds have just two weeks to rehearse and perform a full scale musical with the help of a professional Director, Musical Director and Choreographer. Previous Senior Summer Workshop performances include Grease, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and last year’s Return to the Forbidden Planet. The workshops are always well received by audiences and the participants themselves have a fabulous time and make some lifelong friends.
