A fully staged production featuring a 12-piece professional orchestra!
The Addams Family is a musical comedy based upon the ghoulish comic strip cartoon characters created by Charles Addams and popularised by US TV series and feature films, etc. This Addams Family musical was the first staged production featuring the iconic characters of Morticia, Gomez, Uncle Fester, Wednesday, Lurch, Pugsley, and Grandma. Written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice with Andrew Lippa’s music and lyrics featuring 23 musical numbers, it was successfully launched on Broadway in 2010 followed by world-wide tours including the successful UK tour in 2017 starring Samantha Womack as Morticia.
The story is set in the Addams family spooky mansion in Central Park, NY, surrounded by the graves of their ancestors (who ghoulishly appear from time to time). Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, want the family to secretly maintain their dark, macabre tradition, but 18-year-old daughter Wednesday has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family. Unadvisedly, she has invited the Beineke family to their home for dinner. Hilariously, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family traditions are threatened by change.
