The Depot Theatre is pleased to announce the cast of its production of THE ADDAMS FAMILY: A NEW MUSICAL, with performances from August 11-28, 2022.
The extraordinary cast of 15 actors/dancers/singers is comprised of professional Actors’ Equity Association members, regional standouts, and Depot Theatre Academy participants.
“As an Actors’ Equity Association-affiliated theatre, we always engage some non-Equity members along with Equity professionals for our productions,” said Kenney Green, the show’s director/choreographer and Depot Producing Artistic Director. “But this show is a much larger scale than usual, and only possible because we have engaged the triple-threat talents of our community members and Academy standouts.”
The show is based upon The Addams Family characters created by Charles Addams in his single-panel gag cartoons, which depict a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre.
The plot features the Addams Family’s dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, now an eighteen-year-old young woman, who has fallen in love with a sweet, smart boy from a “normal” family. To make matters worse, she has invited his parents to the Addams’ home for dinner. The result is a “comical feast set to music!”
