The Addams Family

Penn Singers Light Opera Company

November 15 – 17, 2018
Harold Prince Theatre
Penn Student Shows

Since their original inception by Penn Alum Charles Addams, they've been revived in the form of a TV show, a movie, countless other media forms, and now a musical! You know them, you love them, and you could recognize their signature jingle anywhere, it's The Addams Family! The musical comedy based on Charles Addams' beloved characters follows Morticia, Gomez, and their wacky but charming family as they navigate the outside world and the elements that come with it. As eldest daughter Wednesday falls in love with "normal" boy Lucas Bieneke, they must come to terms with welcoming a new family into their home and their life. When Wednesday's desired "normal night" turns into a dinner party gone wrong, lies and secrets are uncovered, revealing both the Addams' and Bienekes' deepest insecurities and fears. Can the families withstand the consequences of "full disclosure," or will they be forever changed? The Addams Family will make you laugh, make you cry, and will keep you humming the catchy tunes of the show beyond the theatre.
