The Addams Family Musical | 15 Nov 2017 - 03 Dec 2017 [Musical Review]

Addams Family in chaos as Wednesday brings home ‘normal’ boyfriend!

Singapore, 8 September 2017 – Opens 15 November, THE ADDAMS FAMILY is bringing their entire clan, whether living, dead or undecided, to the MES Theatre at Mediacorp. Direct from UK, this production showcases a brand new orchestration and presentation, you will not want to miss!  

Producers John Stalker (Music & Lyrics) and Katy Lipson (Aria Entertainment) added “Having delighted hundreds of thousands of theatregoers in the UK with our production of THE ADDAMS FAMILY, we are thrilled to be bringing it to Singapore in partnership with Mediacorp Vizpro. Singaporeans will be able to enjoy great performances from our supremely talented cast, a fantastic musical score, big dance numbers and fun packed script. This is a great theatre visit for all the family. We can’t wait to arrive and start performing!” 

Written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, the creators of multi award-winning Jersey Boys, and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, THE ADDAMS FAMILY musical comedy features an original story, and every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the princess of darkness, has grown up and kept a shocking secret that only Gomez knows; she’s fallen in love with a sweet smart young man from a normal respectable family! And if that weren’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 – keeping this 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. Two different worlds are about to collide. Will love triumph, or will everyone go home vaguely depressed?

Playing the iconic role of ‘Gomez Addams’ is established actor, Cameron Blakely, who was recently seen in Singapore’s season of Les Misérables as Mr Thenardier and also a string of theatrical and film credits to his name. Playing the role of Gomez’s beloved wife, Morticia Addams is Rebecca Thornhill, who joins this wonderful show direct from the West End production of Matilda The Musical, playing Mrs Wormwood to great acclaim, a role she will reprise on the first UK National tour of Matilda in 2018.
Gomez’s beloved daughter, ‘Wednesday Addams’ played by Carrie Hope Fletcher, who played Éponine in Les Misérables, apart from having a strong theatrical and acting credit, is also an established online influencer with over 446,000 followers on Twitter, 436,000 on Instagram and over 636,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel ‘It’sWayPastMyBedTime’.  

Moses Lye, Senior Vice President, Mediacorp Vizpro said “Making people smile, laugh and even cry is at the heart of what we do, bringing the best of live entertainment to Singapore.  We promise you many deliciously heart warming nights with the Addams Family come this November. Enjoy!” 

Come meet this kooky, spooky family as they ride through this family crisis. We’ll leave the lights off for you! … da da da dum *snap* *snap*
