Following the UK Government shutdown of theatres in March, the producers of THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a musical comedy, have rescheduled the new UK & Ireland Tour to dates in 2021. The Tour will now open in Cardiff on 26 January 2021.
Samantha Womack and Cameron Blakely will revive their much loved roles as Morticia and Gomez Addams, based on the characters created by Charles Addams. The rest of the cast are yet to be announced.
Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and has a shocking secret that only Gomez knows; she’s fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family! 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. All the usual clan are present – Uncle Fester, Lurch, Pugsley et al.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a musical comedy, has a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, the creators of multi award-winning Jersey Boys, and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and is directed by Matthew White. Further casting is to be announced.
