They’re spooky, a bit kooky and they’re on stage in Northeast Tennessee.
Theatre-at-Tusculum presents “The Addams Family,” the first time the Broadway-award winning musical has been staged in East Tennessee.
The musical, based on the beloved Charles Addams’ cartoons, will be presented at 7 p.m. on Nov. 20-22 and at 2 p.m. on Nov. 23 in the auditorium of the Annie Hogan Byrd Fine Arts Building on the Tusculum College campus.
Well known and respected actors from the Northeast Tennessee fill the cast for the musical that finds the weird and wonderful Addams family with an affinity for all things macabre with a developing crisis as Wednesday Addams has fallen in love with nerdy Lucas Beineke, who is from a “normal” family.
Meanwhile, well meaning Uncle Fester has been working behind the scenes with the Addams family ancestors, who set about helping the family with its new challenging situation, and the fun ensues for the audience.
Parents are cautioned that while “The Addams Family” is family friendly, it is rated as a “PG” show due to a few instances of rough language.
Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors 60 and over, and $5 for children 12 and under. To reserve tickets, please call 423-798-1620 or email jhollowell@tusculum
