The Addams Family

'Da-da-duh-duh <snap!> <snap!>...'  With a troupe of iconic characters based on the classic 1960s television show, The Addams Family is an exciting new musical comedy featuring everyone’s favorite creepy, kooky family. Young Wednesday Addams is all grown up, and America's Princess of Darkness has fallen in love with the last person anyone would expect; a true all-American-boy, Lucas Beineke. Gomez learns of his daughter’s horrifying secret but can he manage to keep the secret from his beloved Morticia? Wednesday believes that if the Addams family can just be “normal” for one night, they can win over Lucas and his straight-laced family. Everything is on the line for both families in this delightfully ghoulish musical comedy.
