OGDEN, UT-September 20, 2018- From screen, to Broadway, to Ogden, America’s favorite ghoulish characters snap their way to the Ziegfeld stage and into audience hearts. Moritica, Gomez, Wednesday, Pugsley, Fester, Lurch, Grandma and Thing are joined by an even wilder cast of Addams ancestors, who all work together to assist the family in crisis. It’s everything to love about the original series with charming music and hilarious new characters. Join us on October 20 for a special Gothic Homecoming themed performance and Ziegfeld fundraiser, helping the theater to improve its sound system.

 

 

Wednesday’s choice of a “normal” boyfriend throws the Addams family into chaos, including the relationship of her ever devoted and loving parents, Morticia and Gomez. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s boyfriend and his parents. Hilarious and heartwarming, The Addams Family is a crowd-pleaser from beginning to end.

 

The Addams Family is directed by Eb Madson, music directed by Jamie Balaich and choreographed by Heidi Potter Hunt.
