The Addams Family - Oct 24, 25, 30, 31

Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) presents the hit musical comedy, The Addams Family, on October 24 at 7:30 p.m., October 25 at 2:00 p.m., and October 30 at 7:30 p.m., with two shows on October 31 at 2:00 and 8:30. Celebrate a bewitching holiday with a performance before or after Trick or Treating on Halloween; audiences are invited to come dressed in costume, and prizes will be awarded.
Part of FPAC’s 25th anniversary season, The Addams Family will be staged at THE BLACK BOX, the company’s new home and performance venue, located at 15 West Central Street in downtown Franklin.
The devilishly delightful musical serves up an original story based on the iconic characters of legendary cartoonist Charles Addams. Inspiring a TV sitcom, TV cartoon series and two feature films, Addams’ illustrations for The New Yorker spawned a pop culture phenomenon. His famously motley group – Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandma and Lurch – has a taste for everything macabre.

Yet there’s a sweetness, charm and humor at the heart of their twisted and dark world. With book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, The Addams Family musical tests that world when outsiders – the respectable Ohio family of Wednesday’s “normal” fiancĂ© – come to dinner, setting in motion a chain of riotous events on one memorable night!
