Auditions: Sept 18 and 19, THE ADDAMS FAMILY, The Hopeful Theatre Project






THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every 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 wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday 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 and his parents.

$15 of every $20 ticket will go towards Anthem Strong Families and their mission of striving to Be the Champion for our community by educating, equipping and empowering men, women and youth to Be the Champion for their life, their marriage, their children and their family.
