MECHANICSBURG – Mechanicsburg High School will present The Addams Family: A New Musical Comedy on March 11, 12 and 13.
Based on the original single-pane gag comics by Charles Addams from the 1920s, the Addams family is a macabre unit made up of Father, Gomez, Mother, Morticia, and their children, Pugsley and Wednesday. Grandma Addams, Uncle Fester and the ever-present butler, Lurch, round out the odd family unit.
In the new musical by Andrew Lippa, Marshall Brickman and Rick Ellice, we find a much grown Wednesday has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke. But the problem is this boy is “normal,” so in comes the chaos of introducing Lucas, and his parents, to the strange world of the Addamses.
To help ensure Wednesday and Lucas find their happy ever after, Uncle Fester enlists the help of all the Addams family ancestors, who he conveniently locks out of their crypt in the cemetery.
