About The Addams Family

“The unknown may be frightening, the darkness overwhelming, but if we don’t run from it, we may see our mysterious, miraculous lives finally illuminated. If we move toward the darkness, we might find love and acceptance. For when it is dark enough, we can see the stars.”  – Rick Elice

What Is the Story of The Addams Family?
The Addams family…. “they’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re altogether ooky,” but they are far more lovable than scary. The show begins in the Addams family mansion in Central Park when the elegant matriarch, Morticia, and her ever-devoted husband Gomez, are in turmoil. Their daughter Wednesday is all grown up and has fallen in love with an average boy. When she invites her new boyfriend and his “normal” family over for dinner, comic chaos ensues. Not wanting to lose his older sister to this new relationship, Pugsley mixes in one of grandma’s potions at dinner to liven things up, but it gets consumed by the wrong target. Relationships are examined, the truth is set free, and love prevails. This show is laugh out loud funny, romantic, energetic, and full of surprises.

Our production will include a cast and crew of over 80 students from Socastee High, Forestbrook Middle, Socastee Middle, and the AAST.  The Addams Family offers a great opportunity to bring your family together for theatre at its best.  The show times are March 7th and 8th  at 7 PM and March 9th & 10th at 3 & 7 PM.
