“From the comic strips to the popular black and white tv series to the big screen movie to the musical to the popular Netflix series, ‘The Addams Family’ touches generations and reminds us to accept every individual with understanding and love,” said Director Frank Minano. “This musical adaptation combines comedy, vaudeville song and dance with a story that touches the heart for every family member!" he said.
The Creepy Kooky Details:
“The Addams Family”, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it's every father's nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and 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.
