The Addams Family

The cast and crew of Catmose College and Harington School are thrilled to announce the successful completion of their production of ‘The Addams Family’. The show, which ran from 20-23 March was met with rave reviews and standing ovations from sold-out audiences.

The show featured a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family and is 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.

Around 90 students (from Years 7-12) worked on this performance for several months. As well as taking on the roles of the cast, the students ran the lighting and sound, helped with creating the choreography and props, backstage and with the refreshments. This musical follows many successful productions at Catmose College, most recently ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, ‘Legally Blonde’ and the Year 7 performance of ‘Frozen’.

We look forward to seeing you at our future performance events which include Music on a Spring evening in May.” Putting together a musical production is always a massive team effort and this has been no different.,” said Leanne Mitchell, the show’s director. “Without the hard work and commitment of all the students and staff at Catmose we would not have been able to create what you see on stage today. It has been a privilege to be involved in this project.”

The success of ‘The Addams Family’ is a testament to the talent and creativity of the students at Catmose College and Harington School as well as the dedication and support of the school’s staff and community. The production provided an opportunity for students to showcase their skills and passion for the performing arts and was a memorable experience for everyone involved.

Congratulations to the cast and crew of ‘The Addams Family’ for a job well done!
