Lakehill's talented Upper School musical theater students will bring the The Addams Family to the Lakehill stage for two performances on Saturday, November 10, at 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, November 11, at 2:00 p.m. The production takes place in the Charles Wyly, Jr. Auditorium on the school's main campus at 2720 Hillside Drive, Dallas, TX 75214.
The Addams Family is a musical comedy with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Borrowing from the popular television series, Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice’s The Addams Family was nominated for two Tony Awards in 2010 including Best Original Score. The musical’s success sparked a North American and UK tour. The songs include “When You’re An Addams,” “Pulled,” “Full Disclosure,” “Happy Sad,” and “Move Toward the Darkness.”
Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. If that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s "normal" boyfriend and his parents. The musical stars seniors Justin Reed as Lucas Beineke, Georgia Ferguson as Grandma, Julia Bartholow as Alice Beineke, and Bill Song as Mal Beineke; junior Elizabeth Blanchardas Morticia; sophomores Asher Chamoy as Gomez, Sophia Ganson as Wednesday, Keegan Clendenin as Fester, and Jack Pinchot as Lurch; and freshman Spencer Neill as Pugsley. The backstage crew is led by senior Kate Langley, assisted by sophomore Sarah Smith.
The play is directed by Mark Guerra and Tracy Herron. “The cast is phenomenal, and, due to the show's variety of characters, many veteran Lakehill actors are able to take on more challenging roles,” said Guerra. “We are also welcoming many new actors to the stage.”
The performance is suitable for all ages.
General admission tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Reserved seats are $15. Information and tickets are available online.
