We’re in for some finger-snapping fun when the school Drama Club presents “The Addams Family”. It’s a musical based on characters created by Charles Addams.
You know the ones: “They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re altogether ooky, the Addams Family.”
The show — with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice — opened on Broadway in 2010. It’s being presented at the school through arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide.
Performances are Thursday, April 4 at 7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, April 5 and 6, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, April 7 at 3 p.m. The Shelter Island School auditorium is the venue.
Buy tickets in the school lobby, Monday through Friday, from 8 am. to 2 p.m. The cost is $12 for adults and $8 for students.
Or call Lisa at 631-749-0302, ext. 100 to reserve your seats.
‘The Addams Family’ cast
Characters from Addams’ single-panel cartoons make appearances. And, there’s a ‘normal’ boyfriend for Wednesday. He shows up together with his family.
The members of the Addams family are portrayed as follows:
Owen Gibbs as Gomez, Amelia Clark as Morticia, Frances Regan as Wednesday, Taylor Tybaert as Uncle Fester, Nicholas Labrozzi as Pugsley, Jennifer Lupo as Grandma, and Michael Payano as Lurch.
The Beineke family are: David Neese as Wednesday’s boyfriend, Lucas; Devon Bolton and Zebulun Munday alternating as his father, Mal; and Lyng Coyne as his mother, Alice. A ghoulish ensemble of ancestors rounds out the cast.
The production is directed and produced by John Kaasik, assisted by Anu Kaasik. Laura Dickerson is choreographer.
Thanks to the Shelter Island School Drama Club, you won’t need to ride a broomstick to pay a call on the Addams Family. Just drop by the school and pick up a ticket for one of the four performances.
