Addams Family The Musical

In its typical creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky fashion, the ghoulish Addams family is visiting the family graveyard for an annual gathering of all family members, living dead, and undecided, to celebrate what it is to be an Addams. However, the family encounters an unforeseen obstacle when Wednesday decides to introduce her new “normal” boyfriend Lucas to the family. In protest, Uncle Fester enlists the help of the Addams’ ancestors to call an end to the young budding romance. As Wednesday admits that she is falling in love, Morticia, Gomez, and Pugsley worry about her changing ways. As the families of Wednesday and Lucas come together for dinner one fateful evening, chaos ensues and the two families find themselves admitting deep secrets and coming together in ways they never would have imagined. The Addams Family Musical tells the story of love and friendship through adversity, with a comical and macabre yet poignant spin.

Parental Summary:


Addams Family the Musical is a comedy based on the Charles Addams cartoon series and the 60’s television show.
The overall themes are truth, acceptance, family togetherness, the importance of love, and the idea that “normal” is
what feels right and good inside each person.


The production includes an ensemble of “dead” Addams ancestors dressed as friendly ghosts. There is some
gallows humor, bedroom humor and sexual innuendo. References to violence including comically depicted
“torture,” bathroom humor, and a few instances of adult language. Brief use of stage fog.


Children might understand more of the humor and recognize the characters after first viewing an episode of the
television series.
