A glitzy-gloomy musical entirely worthy of the macabre drawings by Charles Addams. You'll conclude that the stage was their destiny!

Why See The Addams Family?

The Addams Family is on tour and hits the 5th Avenue Theatrein Seattle, WA, Closed November 11, 2012

They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky - c'mon, you know that tune! A dream cast takes on the quirky characters in a new and original Addams Family tale.

As the musical begins, there are storm clouds gathering over the Addams Family home. Wednesday is falling in love, young Pugsley, jealous of his sister's attention, begs her to keep torturing him severely, while mother Morticia fears being upstaged and discarded by her daughter's lurch into womanhood... like yesterday's roadkill.

But when outsiders come to dinner, the events of one night will change forever this famously macabre family - a family so very different from your own - or maybe not.
