The Addams Family

Directed by Kathy Heater & Sara Coxen

Cast Announced!

The weird and wonderful family from Charles Addams' comic strip and campy 60's television comes to devilishly delightful life in THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a new musical headed to the Newport Performing Arts Center in November 2017. This magnificently macabre production will be directed by powerhouse team Kathy Heater and Sara Coxen, who along with their production staff, have announced the cast (below). Congratualtions all!

In the kooky, upside-down world of THE ADDAMS FAMILY, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, including the spookiest nightmare of all: the Addams kids are growing up. The Addams have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, however, is now young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family — the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she 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. In one fateful, hilarious night, when they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change.
