By Berkshires Macaroni Kid May 7, 2024

Adams—BART Theatre is proud to announce its highly anticipated spring musical production of The Addams Family. The show will run on Thursday, May 16 and Friday, May 17 at 7:00 p.m., with a matinee performance on Saturday, May 18 at 4:00 p.m.

The School is thrilled to present this show at the Adams Theater, located at 27 Park Street in Adams.

The Addams Family is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family–a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday 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. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

The Addams Family was written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice with music and lyrics by Andrew Lipp. Alexia Trainor directs this production with musical direction by James Bergin and choreography by Malia'Kekia Nicolini. This production was made possible with the support of the Massachusetts Cultural Council and STARS grants.
