Their creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, and they’re coming to Springville High School.
A presentation of the musical “The Addams Family” by the Springville-Griffith Institute High School Musical Society is set for three performances this weekend beginning March 6
Living in their super-spooky mansion in Central Park, the Addams Family is led by the elegantly gaunt Morticia (played by Alex Simmons) and her ever-devoted husband Gomez (Josh Buckley.) The pair are in turmoil — their daughter is getting married and they can’t believe it’s true!
Wednesday (Sam Yetter), now 18, has fallen in love with the “normal” Lucas Beineke (Zach Scime.) Lucas and his “normal” parents, Alice Beineke (Jolie Weber) and Mal Beineke (Ben Maul), are invited over for dinner to get better acquainted with the Addams household. Soon enough, “all heck would break loose.”
The cast also includes Victoria Ehrig as Grandma, Matt Arrington as brother Pugsley, Liam Cerone as Uncle Fester and Andrew Keyser as the family’s butler Lurch, as well many other talented students.
The cast and crew of 40-plus students have been working hard acting, singing and dancing since December to put on a spectacular performance that the audience is sure to love.
Performances are on March 6 and 7 at 7:30 p.m. and 8 at 2 p.m. in the Lyle G. Palmer Auditorium. Adult tickets are $10, students and seniors are $7. Tickets are on sale now at www.springvillegi.org and also available at the door.
Springville-Griffith Institute High School is located at 290 North Buffalo St., Springville.
