THE ADDAMS FAMILY •Show Dates: November 5-19 •Dates: November 10 – 19 •Times: Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM / Sundays at 2 PM •ADDED PERFORMANCES: Thursday, November 16 at 7:30 PM & Saturday, November 18 at 2:00 PM •Location: Silk Room at Cheney Hall, 177 Hartford Rd, Manchester •Ticket Prices: $30 for VIP / $25 for General Seating (Student & Senior Discounts Available) From Jersey Boys creators Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and Drama Desk Award-winning composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa, this musical comedy brings Charles Addams’ beloved and bizarre Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and Lurch to spectacular life, complete with show-stopping musical numbers. Don’t miss the show that Bloomberg News declared, “Uproarious! A glitzy-gloomy musical entirely worthy of the macabre drawings by Charles Addams.” The magnificently morbid family is put to the test when outsiders come to dinner, hurling them into a night that will change their lives forever. Not much scares Gomez Addams, but when his daughter Wednesday falls in love with a “normal” young man, he finds himself in a personal nightmare. It’s a macabre family gathering full of unbridled fun, exuberant music and dance, and spooky spectacles for your WHOLE FAMILY TO ENJOY! Directed by Jane Cerosky
