The Addams Family runs from October 21-23 and October 28-30.

The MAC Players to Present THE ADDAMS FAMILY This Month

The MAC PLAYERS, Middletown Arts Center's community theater group, returns this fall with the creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky and altogether ooky The Addams Family: A New Musical Comedy on October 21-23 and October 28-30.

The production is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family and features an original story: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness and daughter of Gomez and Morticia, has fallen in love with a sweet, smart "normal" young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. Everything changes for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's "regular" boyfriend and his parents. A deliciously wacky and whimsical night of music, chills and thrills!
