Rehearsals are underway for Taft’s fall musical, The Addams Family School Edition, an adaptation of the original off-Broadway production.
Billed as “a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family,” the musical delivers an original story featuring the classic Addams Family characters created by cartoonist Charles Addams in 1938. Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Lurch, and Fester will all appear on stage in Taft’s Bingham Auditorium.
There will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy the show, including Opening Night on Fall Family weekend.
