The Addams Family is not just a strange lot, they are very different. When ‘girl from strange family meets boy from normal family’ and the two fall in love there are hilarious consequences with everything pointing to complete disaster!Gomez Addams played by Jack McGrath is a charismatic family man of Spanish decent who loves nothing more than to tango with his wife.
Morticia is the beautiful matriarch of the family who knows her husband and daughter are keeping secrets from her and will stop at nothing to find out the truth.
Morticia is played by Dirin Brett Lennon. Wednesday, the daughter of Gomez and Morticia is played by Niamh Fennessy. While she loves to torture her brother, she has now fallen in love and pleads with her family to ‘act normal’ for just one night so she can have her boyfriend and his family over to dinner. The show has a very talented young cast who are sure to entertain you whether you are seven or a hundred and seven! Don’t miss it.
