Support The Addams Family

The Addams Family is the 58th AHS Spring Musical! We are excited to create a show that will honor and celebrate this longstanding tradition, but Covid-19 restrictions mean that we cannot sell out performances—in-person tickets will be restricted to 25% or less than our usual. We are determined to give the students of Anderson a safe, fun, and high-quality theatrical experience, despite the many limitations. You can help by donating directly to the AHS Spring Musical Fund. Become a Contributor or purchase an ad in our Program, and support the survival of performing arts in these unusual times. THANK YOU.

The First Family of the Macabre comes to brilliant life in this wild and wonderful Broadway musical. Little Wednesday Addams is all grown up, and has shocked both herself and her parents by falling in love with a boy from a “normal” family. The entire Addams clan, Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandmama and Lurch, are put to the test when they are forced to host the respectably average Beinekes for an evening that might change both families forever.

Based on the belovedly bizarre family of characters created by cartoonist Charles Addams, The Addams Family celebrates the turbulent and unique bonds between parents and children and husbands and wives. The music is bright, zany, sweet and sentimental, and is sure to send audiences home wishing they too could be an Addams. Join Anderson Theatre for this comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family.
