The Addams Family

Directed by Kathy Heater & Sara Coxen

2017 Blockbuster Hit!

The weird and wonderful family from Charles Addams' comic strip and campy 60's television came to devilishly delightful life in THE ADDAMS FAMILY, the new musical which entranced Newport audiences in November 2017. This magnificently macabre production was directed by powerhouse team Kathy Heater and Sara Coxen, and featured a frighteningly talented cast and crew

In the kooky, upside-down musical world of THE ADDAMS FAMILY, to be sad was to be happy, to feel pain was to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still had to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, including the spookiest nightmare of all: the Addams kids growing up. The Addams lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia (played by Justin Atkins and Stacey Fisher), the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would have been only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday (Cassie Lihou), however, had become a young woman ready for a life of her own. She falls in love with Lucas Beineke (Cooper Theodore), a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family — the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. In one fateful, hilarious night, when they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change.
