ADDAMS FAMILY REUNION
Stage 2 Theatre Production for ages 12 - 18
Morticia and Gomez have decided it is time to gather friends and family to the Addams family home. Not your typical family reunion, this musical comedy makes normal look terrifying. Like most families, you will find your monstrous characters and odd balls coming out of the woodwork, all expecting some big announcement as the wealthy Gomez and spooky Morticia act mysterious and vague about the reason for the Halloween gathering. Their goth daughter Wednesday and manical son Pugsley, are up for the challenge of being polite but with a few pranks up their sleeves for the guests, while Lurch mumbles and grumbles his discontent. Uncle Fester welcomes Munsters and monsters with open arms hoping to interest them in his latest inventions, while Mama cooks up some horrifying goodies in the kitchen.
You won't want to miss the mayhem that follows this monstrous family reunion.
