The Addams Family is the smash hit musical comedy with a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice (JERSEY BOYS) and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa.
The Addams Family features an original story and it's 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. A man her parents have never met. 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 a fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's "normal" boyfriend and his parents.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY is the must-see musical comedy event of the season. Meet the family. We'll leave the light off for you!

If you could imagine a little girl named Clara, a magical Nutcracker doll, a mysterious magician Drosselmeyer, toss in an evil Rat Queen, fearless soldiers, beautiful snowflakes, a breath-taking Sugar Plum fairy, and enough sparkling costumes that would make Liberace weep with envy…you are dreaming of the Nutcracker ballet!
Enhanced by Tchaikovsky’s rich score, distinctive choreography, and dazzling performance this extravagant production is ideal for children and those of us who can still be carried away to a magnificent world of beauty. This holiday season is somehow unthinkable without it.
