Addams Family  12-22-2012

Did You Know? - THE ADDAMS FAMILY is a smash-hit musical comedy that brings the darkly delirious world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and, of course, Lurch to spooky and spectacular life. "A visually satisfying, rib tickling, lunatic musical that will entertain you to death!" according to the Toronto Post City, this magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman and Mark Elice, Drama Desk-winning composer /lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys) and Olivier Award-winning directors/designers Phelim McDermott and Julien Crouch (Shockheaded Peter) with creative consultation by four-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks. Come meet the family. We'll leave the lights off for you.

Quick! To The Garden Grove Elks And Jerry Benton... A Great Evening Of Dancing
