2018 PRODUCTION ANNOUNCEMENT


It’s a little bit different and definitely out there!

We are looking for 60 dynamic youth performers aged 10 – 17 years to be part of this modern day musical theatre production.

SYNOPSIS: In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel agony is to feel joy and suffering is the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family. However, their worst nightmare is about to be realised, as the Addams kids are growing up! The Addams’ have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their beloved daughter Wednesday, however, is now an eighteen year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable family — the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And to make matters worse, she has invited the Beinekes to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: CHANGE!
