Wayne Community Theater Presents: “The Addams Family: A Musical”

Who: Wayne Community Theater

What: The Addams Family: A Musical; book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice; Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa

When: Friday July 20th and Saturday July 21st at 7pm; Sunday July 22nd at 2pm

Where: Black Box Theatre (lower level of Peterson Fine Arts, on WSC Campus)

Cost: Tickets are $12

Why: THE ADDAMS 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 weren’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.

Show sponsored by Copy Write and State Nebraska Bank. Poster designed by Emma Osnes.
