The Addams Family

Commencement Musical
University Theatre
May 19-21


The Addams Family is a lighthearted musical take on the trials and tribulations of this infamous gothic family. In this show, Wednesday Addams invites her boyfriend Lucas and his painfully ordinary parents over for dinner, with plans to announce their engagement. The families clash, and disaster arises: Gomez Addams fails to keep his daughter’s wedding plans from his wife Morticia, Lucas’s mother drinks a truth serum intended for Wednesday and reveals her failing marriage, and the house devolves into utter chaos. With the help from the Addams’ ancestors, Uncle Fester helps the three couples reignite their love, and the families come together to support Lucas and Wednesday’s marriage.
