The Addams Family

The Addams Family




This musical comedy is based on the Addams Family characters featured in Charles Addams’ single-panel gag cartoons.


Story:

Wednesday Addams and her “normal” boyfriend Lucas arrange a dinner at the Addams’ mansion to announce to their families their plans to marry. The idea is jarring to both the families, and when the entire groups winds up locked in overnight, secrets come out and revelations abound.
