MCP Announces The Cast Of THE ADDAMS FAMILY
The Monmouth Community Players, along with marquis sponsor the Monmouth Federal Credit Union and show sponsor Optometric Associates, welcome 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. At the helm of this production are Josie French as director and Josh Caron as Music Director. Rounding out the team are Phoebe Gouette as Choreographer, Leo Caron as Lighting Designer and Operator, Kyla Mahan as Sound Operator and Danny Gay as Producer.
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 (Chris L'Hommedieu), Morticia (Karen Lipovsky), Uncle Fester (Paul Menezes), Grandma (Jackie McDonald), Wednesday (Megan Record), Pugsley (Shawn Jiminez) and Lurch (Zach Hodge) 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, Lucas Beineke (Lou Ford), and his parents, Mal (Henry Quintal) and Alice (Colleen Mahan), and comedic chaos ensues!
