Addams Family’ musical at MHS
A marriage joins two individuals and two families, however imagine a scenario in which one family is genuinely ordinary and the other is, well, idiosyncratic. State, for instance, they’re “frightening and silly, baffling and creepy, and altogether ooky.”
This is the issue at the core of “The Addams Family: A New Musical,” the Tony Award-winning melodic parody to be displayed by Milton High School. Exhibitions will be on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 2 at 2 and 7 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 3 at 2 p.m.in the school’s Charles C. Winchester Auditorium on 25 Gile Road. Tickets are $12.
Little girl Wednesday Addams has become hopelessly enamored with Lucas Beineke, whom she expects to wed, yet Lucas and his good guardians, Mal and Alice, may not be prepared for the Addams family: father Gomez, a relative of conquistadors with a propensity for swordplay; dark clad goth mother Morticia; brother Pugsley, whose affection for his sister is just insignificantly more noteworthy than his craving to be tormented; Uncle Fester, a man youngster pitifully infatuated with the moon; the centenarian Grandma; and Lurch, their reality tired zombie head servant who conveys in groans and moans.
While Wednesday would like to persuade her family to be typical for only one night so she can protect her future with Lucas, nothing is ever that simple, particularly for the Addams family. A lost mixture, a scarcely stayed discreet, and the disclosure of up to this time implicit certainties by the two families guarantee that the wildly entertaining night twists crazy such that will perpetually change both the Beinekes and the Addams family.
With a melodic score that shifts from flamenco to vaudeville to jazz, swing, ditties, and contemporary pop, “The Addams Family: A New Musical” is an absolute necessity see occasion for the Halloween season.
