Directed by Matthew White, the company also features Lesley Joseph as Grandma, Sam Buttery (Jesus Christ Superstar) as Uncle Fester, Nicholas Mclean (Annie Get Your Gun) as Pugsley Addams, Dickon Gough (As You Like It) as Lurch, Sean Kingsley (Patriots) as Mal, Ryan Kopel (Disney’s Newsies) as Lucas, Kara Lane (Rebecca) as Alice, and Chumisa Dornford-May (Aspects of Love) as Wednesday Addams, with Leeroy Boone (The Phantom of the Opera), Abigail Brodie (Wind in the Willows), Gavin Eden (Hairspray), Chloe Gentles (Mamma Mia!), Katie Hutton (Cats), Matthew Ives (Back to the Future), Jessica Keable (42nd Street), and Castell Parker (Sister Act).

Based on characters created by Charles Addams, The Addams Family has a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa.

The musical, which opened on Broadway in April 2010 and ran through December 2011, follows Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, who has grown up and has a shocking secret that only dad Gomez knows: She’s fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family.

The concerts also feature choreography by Alistair David, production design by Diego Pitarch, musical supervision and orchestrations by Richard Beadle, lighting design by Ben Cracknell, sound design by Richard Brooker, and casting by Jane Deitch.
