Depot Theatre Announces Monstrous Cast of THE ADDAMS FAMILY
The Depot Theatre is pleased to announce the cast of its production of THE ADDAMS FAMILY: A NEW MUSICAL, with performances from August 11-28, 2022.
The show is based upon The Addams Family characters created by Charles Addams in his single-panel gag cartoons, which depict a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre.
The plot features the Addams Family’s dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, now an eighteen-year-old young woman, who has fallen in love with a sweet, smart boy from a “normal” family. To make matters worse, she has invited his parents to the Addams’ home for dinner. The result is a “comical feast set to music!”
Meet the full cast list HERE.
