APAA's Production of The Addams Family
Auckland Performing Arts Academy welcomes you to experience the 'intoxicating smell of the graveyard' as you join them for their performance of Broadway's multi award-winning, upbeat musical-comedy, The Addams Family.
Featuring a family who live in an upside-down world where pain is joy, sad is happy and death and suffering are dreams to aspire to, The Addams Family brings the deliriously delightful world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and Lurch to spooky and spectacular life.
The story is every father's nightmare - Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. 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 and comedic chaos ensues!
