Stoneham Theatre Adds THE ADDAMS FAMILY to 2014-15 Season
Stoneham Theatre has announced that The Addams Family, a new musical with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, has been added to their 2014-2015 Season. Producing Artistic Director Weylin Symes said, "We recently found out that the rights to this show were available, and we jumped at the chance to include it in Season 15. It's the perfect musical to do in October because our audiences have loved our Halloween-time shows of past seasons, such as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in Season 14 and Double Indemnity in Season 13." He added that "audience members of all ages will see classic characters such as Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Lurch, and Uncle Fester while enjoying a new story and new songs from the Broadway show that was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Original Score. The Addams Family will run on the Mainstage from October 16-November 9, 2014 and will be included in Stoneham Theatre Season 15 memberships.
Gomez and Morticia Addams couldn't be prouder of their creepy and kooky family. But when their delightfully sinister daughter, Wednesday, falls in love with a perfectly normal boy and invites his parents over for dinner, nothing will ever be the same. Just in time for Halloween, see all of your favorite characters from the Addams Family come to life in this wonderfully wacky new Broadway musical comedy.
Neville's Island by Tim Firth, which was originally slated to run in October 2014 will now play at Stoneham Theatre from April 9-26, 2015. Stay tuned for information about Walking the Tightrope by Mike Kenny, which was originally scheduled for April 2015.
Season 15 Memberships are on sale now by calling the Stoneham Theatre Box Office at 781-279-2200. Single tickets to The Addams Family will be available on July 1, 2014.
