Jennie Eisenhower to Star in Media Theatre's THE ADDAMS FAMILY, 9/24-11/2

By: Aug. 09, 2014
The Media Theatre has the Philadelphia regional professional premiere of Broadway's hit musical comedy "The Addams Family" September 24-November 2.

Produced by Media Music Theatre Company, the show is based on Charles Addams' single panel comic strip from which a legendary '60's tv sitcom was created.

In "The Addams Family" musical, created by Marshall Brickman &; Rick Elice and Andrew Lippa, the humorously bizarre family that delights in the macabre must come to terms with 18 year old Wednesday's infatuation with a young man from a family quite unlike their own. Even though we see the Addams' singing ghoulish ancestors in the show, The Chicago Sun-Times says "The Addams Family" has 'an abundance of life'.

That life will be brought to The Media Theatre stage with what could be referred to as a Philadelphia All-Star Cast. Two Barrymore Award winners will portray the delightfully devilish couple who head the family. Jeff Coon will play the role of Gomez with Jennie Eisenhower as Morticia.

Lauren Cupples will add the role of Wednesday to her list of Media Theatre credits. JD Triolo will play Pugsley, with Andrew Rubin appearing as Pugsley during matinees. Susan Wefel will be Grandmama with Nicholas Saverine as Fester. The tall role of Lurch will be played by Bill Vargus.

Jake Glassman plays Wednesday's boyfriend Lucas, with Kristine Fraelich as Alice and Paul Weagraff as Mal.
The Ancestors and Ensemble are Aaron Atkinson, Rachel Beiswenger, Zachary Chiero, JP Dunphy, Patrick Ludt, Sam Nagel, Jacquline Rosenthal, Megan Rucidlo, and Sarah Spangenberg.

Dann Dunn directs and choreographs with Christopher Ertelt as music director. Ertelt will be the 2014-15 Resident Music Director for Media Music Theatre Company (Jesse Cline, Artistic Director).

"The Addams Family" tickets may be purchased at or by calling 610-891-0100. Group rates are available for all performances. The musical comedy runs September 24 through November 2 at The Media Theatre, 104 East State Street in Media, PA.
