The Addams Family is a classic tale ... and every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable, “normal” family -- a man her parents have never met. Hilarity ensues and everything changes on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. This musical will leave you smiling. Enjoy delightful characters, fun musical numbers and some surprises in this new musical comedy.
