Ogunquit Playhouse Adds THE ADDAMS FAMILY to 2014 Season
The Ogunquit Playhouse, America's Foremost Summer Theatre, will be one of the first regional premieres of the Broadway musical sensation The Addams Family. The frightfully delightful world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and, of course, Lurch come to spooky and spectacular life in this all new story, based on the bizarre and beloved characters created by cartoonist Charles Addams. The magnificently macabre family is put to the test when outsiders come to dinner, hurling them into a night that will change their lives forever. This new musical comedy was created by Jersey Boys' authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and Drama Desk Award winning composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa. Executive Artistic Director Bradford Kenney said, "This hilarious family friendly musical has now been seen around the world and we are delighted to create our own production of this spooky, kooky, warm and wonderful, musical comedy. It will be a full scale extravaganza with show stopping musical numbers and all the fun you would expect from America's first family of fright." The Addams Family is on stage October 1 through 26. Come pay a call on the Addams Family - they're dying to meet you.

The Ogunquit Playhouse was selected by Cameron Mackintosh to be the American Northeast premiere of his hit musical stage adaptation of The Witches of Eastwick, on stage September 3 to 27.

"They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're altogether ooky!"
