“A rib-tickling, lunatic musical that will entertain you to death!”  –Toronto Post City

We all have skeletons in our closet, but it takes a kooky family like the Addams to keep a pet squid there!  From the writers of the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys, THE ADDAMS FAMILY tells the story of every father’s nightmare…that moment when your devilish little girl grows up and falls in love with a normal man from a respectable family.  That’s right, Wednesday Addams has a boyfriend and this magnificently macabre family gets the shock of a lifetime when she brings him and his parents home for dinner.  With brilliant new songs that are all-together ooky, the whole Addams family comes together for a riotous night of ghoulish glee, with surprises that are sure to turn the house downside up and leave you snapping up the aisle!
