This is the Addams family like you’ve never seen them before: creepy, quirky and in love.
The community is invited to Minnesota State Community and Technical College as the Theatre and Music departments present “The Addams Family” musical comedy Nov. 8-11 in Waage Theatre on the Fergus Falls campus.
Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a normal family. Wednesday confides in her father that the two want to get married, and now Gomez Addams must do something he has never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the Addams family as they host a dinner for Wednesday’s boyfriend and his parents.
Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 8-10, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11.
Cast members are Blair Andersen of Glenwood; Libby Poyzer of Elbow Lake; Devin Cordahl of Pelican Rapids; Madicyn Monsrud of Roseau; Ethan Quill and Tyler Wasserbauer of Becker; Sydney Berg of Grand Forks; Desmond Smedsrud of Underwood; and Taylor Larson, Ben Munsterman, Tyler Hauge, Alise Werner, Angel Grenvik, Andrew Rasmusson and Austin Begley, all of Fergus Falls.
