The Addams Family

The smash-hit Broadway musical comedy!

Look who's moved into the neighbourhood!

Everyone's favourite kooky family are coming back on stage in this spectacular musical comedy from the writers of multi-award-winning hit musical JERSEY BOYS, with music and lyrics by TONY AWARD nominated Andrew Lippa and starring Joanne Clifton (Strictly Come Dancing and The Rocky Horror Show) as Morticia.

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, is all grown up and has a shocking secret that only Gomez knows. She's fallen in love with a sweet young man from a respectable family. With his cherished Morticia in the dark, will Gomez manage to keep his daughter’s secret until the two families meet for a fateful dinner with hilarious consequences?

Join them, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Pugsley and more for a heart-warming story of love, family and friendship… with a twist!

Featuring a live orchestra and extraordinary original score THE ADDAMS FAMILY is sure to entertain whether you are 12 or 312!

Book by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice
Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Based on characters created by Charles Addams
Presented through special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide
