Don’t Miss GCT’s kooky production, ‘The Addams Family – A New Musical’
Garland Civic Theatre brings the weird and wonderful family to devilishly delightful life in “The Addams Family – A New Musical!” The book is by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and the music and lyrics are by Andrew Lippa.
In this musical comedy, Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
The talented cast features Brandon Tijerina as Gomez; Marilyn B. Twyman as Morticia; Cosette Lehmann as Wednesday; Jorge Martin Lara as Fester; Zayde Vetter as Pugsley; Robert Marsh as Lucas; Andrew Bryan as Mal; Meredith McAlister as Alice; Brandy Townsend as Grandma; and Jacob Drum as Lurch. Vic Long, Avery Mahan, Samantha Masucci, Elizabeth Miller, and Ashton Paige play The Addams Ancestors.
The production is directed and designed by Kyle McClaran, stage managed by Cheryl Pellett, and assistant stage managed by Brandy Nuttall and Elizabeth Pellett.
Come meet the family. We’ll leave the lights off for you.
