Possum Juniors Perform THE ADDAMS FAMILY, 7/20-23
The Possum Point Players' youth affiliate Possum Juniors gets a little ghoulish on stage as they perform the musical comedy, "The Addams Family."

Rounding out the cast are Wade Stout, Riverdale; Finnley Sheridan, Frankford; and Rowan Reusing, Dagsboro. Kyra Cutsail of Laurel directs "The Addams Family" and Stacey Hartman of Milford is music director.
Not your everyday suburban family, the Addams possess powers slightly to the dark side and the loving extended family includes quirky relatives, living, dead and undecided. Gomez and Morticia have raised their children to carry on family traditions and always hold to family values of caring and haunting together to honor their numerous ancestors. They annually visit the graveyard to share and keep close ties with those who continue to spread the macabre musical message to the heights and, perhaps the depths, for those who have gone on.
Destined to be a princess of darkness, Wednesday, the daughter of the family, somehow strays from the freaky family way and ends up in love with a boy who is frightfully normal! It will come as a shock to no one that a get-acquainted dinner for the Addams and boyfriend Lucas' average everyday family goes the way of the Addams' average everyday nightmare. There are favors asked of ancestors, magic potions that end up in the wrong cup, storms called up to keep everyone locked down in the Addams creepy mansion, confessions of love and maybe a moon shot.
The 'Addams Family is being produced through special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide.
