The mysterious Addams Family children Wednesday (Elissa Mockbill) and Pugsley (Grant Howe) are growing up, and parents Gomez (Ben Dean) and Morticia (Audrey Moyer) are dealing with the same challenges faced any other family. The family’s world is turned upside down when Wednesday announces that she has invited her boyfriend Lucas Beineke (Ben Yoder) and his parents Mal and Alice Beineke (Evan Nolan and Hayley Stefforia) to the Addams’ mansion for dinner. Comedy ensues during the evening as secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family and the Beineke family spend the night together.
“‘The Addams Family Musical’ is a musical comedy that will be fun for all ages,” said Joey Burgam, the production’s director. “The students have been working incredibly hard preparing for the show. It is going to be a great production.”
The show will also feature everyone’s favorite uncle, Uncle Fester (Ryan Chapman), Grandmama Addams (Sayo Fuji) and of course, Lurch (Ryan Chapman).
