The Addams Family at Springfield Little Theatre

Why see The Addams Family?

A morbidly magic tale

They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky - c'mon, you know that tune! Distilling the morbid magic of Charles Addams' beloved cartoons, adding a toe-tapping score, ghoulish song-and-dance numbers, and hilarious moments into the mix with highly entertaining results, don't miss The Addams Family musical, stepping onto stage in your city!

What is the story?

As the musical begins, storm clouds are gathering over the Addams Family home. Wednesday is falling in love, young Pugsley, jealous of his sister's attention, begs her to keep torturing him severely, while mother Morticia fears being upstaged and discarded by her daughter's lurch into womanhood... like yesterday's roadkill. But when outsiders come to dinner, the events of one night will change forever this famously macabre family - a family so very different from your own - or maybe not.
