Apex Theatre Studio will present the silly and spooky Broadway musical hit, “The Addams Family,” on April 17-18 at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.
Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 17, and at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 18.
“The Addams Family” is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family. The show is based upon The Addams Family characters created by Charles Addams in his single-panel gag cartoons, which depict an offbeat family with an affinity for all things macabre. In this original story, the macabre Addams family is put to the test when outsiders come to dinner, hurling Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester and Lurch headlong into a night that will change the family forever.
“We are currently blessed with a company of musical theater performers who all share the same skewed sense of humor. This show is a natural fit for them,” said the show’s director, Ian Mairs.
The cast is headlined by DJ DeJesus (Gomez), Gabby Parker (Morticia), Olivia DeMaio (Wednesday) and Charlie Pennella (Pugsley). The company of 20 young artists make up the advanced level musical theater workshop at Apex Theatre Studio.
