BATTLE GROUND — The Battle Ground High School Drama Club is set to perform the musical “The Addams Family” beginning May 3.
Directed by Stephan “Cash” Henry, the play brings the wonderfully weird and devilishly delightful family to life. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy was created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice.
“The Addams Family” features an original story that 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 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 the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
The show runs May 3-5 and May 11-13. All shows begin at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Performances will be at The Lair at Battle Ground High School, 300 W. Main St. in Battle Ground. Tickets cost $7 for students and senior citizens, and $10 for adults and the general public. Tickets can be purchased at the Battle Ground High School ASB Office, at the door just prior to the performances, or online at https://payments.battlegroundps.org/.
