Play Synopsis

Hundreds of years ago the Addam’s Family ancestors came from the old country and settled on a plot of land in what is now New York’s Central Park.  This was, of course, long before it was a park.  The loveable family of creepy kooks is still alive and well and living in their super-spooky mansion in the park.  However, the family, led by the elegantly gaunt and seemingly undead Morticia and her ever-devoted husband Gomez, is in turmoil.  Their daughter Wednesday, now 18, falls in love.  When she invites her new boyfriend, Lucas Beineke, over with his “normal” family to get better acquainted with the Addam’s household, cahos (including everything from an amorous giant squid to mixed-up potions to a scorching tango) ensues.
