Ann Arbor Civic Theatre Presents Addams Family

Ann Arbor Civic Theatre will be presenting Addams Family this September. The play is a great way to introduce your older kids to the classic story of the Addams Family.  When I received the press release, I asked about a recommended age. They said that they consider the play to be PG/PG-13, so use your judgement as to whether your children are the right age for the show.

The press release below has more details:



Ann Arbor Civic Theatre presents the new musical The Addams Family, directed by Trisha Fountain, September 10-13, 2015, at UM’s Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, 911 N. University, Ann Arbor, 48109.  Performances are Thursday at 7:30 pm, Friday and Saturday at 8pm, with a 2pm matinee on Sunday.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday tickets are $25, with tickets at $22 for seniors and $13 for students. On Thursday only, all seats are $19, with $13 tickets for students. Tickets and information are available online at, through the A2CT office at 734-971-2228, or at the door of the theater before each performance.

In this darkly comic musical, Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. Everything will change for the Addams family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

“What I love about this musical,” says director Trisha Fountain, “is its ability to take a set of characters that most people know and love as caricatures or cartoons and bring them to life in a way that makes them relatable in today’s world.”


Music direction for The Addams Family is by Jennifer Goltz, with choreography by Joseph Sammour. The talented cast features Brodie Brockie as Gomez, Victoria Reackhof as Morticia, Kailey Schneeman as Wednesday, Michael Cicirelli as Lucas, Joseph Daniel as Fester, Matt Wallace as Mal, Madison Merlanti as Alice, Connor Casey as Pugsley, Wendy Sielaff as Grandma, and Karl Kasischke as Lurch.  The ensemble of Addams Family Ancestors includes Briana Bower, Stacy Buck, Lydia Cappaert, Wendy Fritz, Lisa Gavan, Dante Hill, Brent Lofgren, Paige Martin, Jessica Miorelli, Daisy Mull, Jennie Rupp, Dana Schlegel, and Kelly Wade.
