THE ADDAMS FAMILY
In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus of Lippa, Brickman, and Elice’s musical: the Addams kids are growing up.
The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way.
Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, however, is now an eighteen-year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family — the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And to make matters worse, she has invited the Beinekes to their home for dinner.
In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change.
TheatreBox is a vibrant and lively theatre school, operating from The Arts Complex, a buzzing, inspirational environment in which students feel encouraged to reach their full potential whether they are coming to develop confidence, make friends or with a professional performing arts career in their sights.
This multi award winning Waterford stage school offers a safe, fun and exciting learning experience, helping pupils to develop self-confidence, self-expression and personal development through the medium of dance, drama and singing. Our welcoming and experienced tutors draw out the individual in every child, encouraging them to explore their imagination, passion, and unique sense of self.
Students get the opportunity to perform throughout the year at festivals and events. They also get to go on theatre trips and attend workshops, as well as work towards a large-scale end-of-year show in the Theatre Royal. Students also have the option of taking recognised graded examinations if they wish.
