Depot Theatre’s “The Addams Family” by Tim Rowland
The Addams Family brand just won’t die. But of course.
Born in 1938 as a series of one-panel cartoons, this ghoulish family has lived through the generations as cartoon, TV show, film, video game, dance move, and musical comedy.
Broadway critics tried to drive a stake through the family’s heart a dozen years ago when the original Addams Family musical was introduced, with reviews filled with what cast members called “absolute cruelty and vitriol.” Gomez and Morticia would have approved.
But critics and paying customers didn’t, and the production was hastily retooled, after which it rose from the dead and became a nationwide hit.

The course is a two-part instructional walkthrough of setting up and maintaining a sustainable Etsy shop. It’s designed for beginner and intermediate level shop owners (or future shop owners), with additional special topics for professional practices on the platform.
