LEEDS – The Leeds Arts Council is putting on its unique performance of The Addams Family Musical just in time for the Halloween season starting this weekend.
“It’s the week of the show y’all! If you haven’t gotten your tickets for Addams Family it’s best to do so now,” said a post on the Leeds Arts Council’s Facebook page. “We are nearly sold out for the first Sunday! Get your tickets at leedsartscouncil.org. See you at the show.”
Brandi McClaran, director, said in a prior interview that viewers should come prepared to experience a new story in the long history of The Addams Family.
“The synopsis of the show is a little bit different from what you might expect if you’re a traditional Addams family viewer. Wednesday is all grown up and she has a secret. She has met a boy she wants to marry who she has defined as normal. She is keeping this secret from her mother and everyone else until the boy’s family comes to meet the family for dinner,” McClaran said. “It’s very humorous but it has some sweet moments as well.”
Over 28 local performers are ready to put on a show, several of which have performed the play before.
Performances will be held throughout October with two different times available. October 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14 will have performances at 7 p.m., while October 8 and 15 will have a showing at 2:30 p.m.
