Cast of The Addams Family

Director Travis Hornsby and Musical Director Karri Kearns are in preparation for May River Theatre’s Fall 2023 production of  The Addams Family – A New Musical Comedy.  The show opens just in time for Halloween on Friday, October 20th and runs through Sunday, October 29th.

Loosely derived from the successful TV series and films, The Addams Family franchise is more popular than ever with the recent success of the streaming series Wednesday.

Cast in this creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky musical are Jared Cotton as Gomez Addams, Elissa Harrell as his wife Morticia, Lily Beck as daughter Wednesday, Elliot Mathis as son Pugsly, Kay Owen as the Grandma, Kyle Price as kooky Uncle Fester, Chris Hoffer as Mal, Ellie Friedman as Alice, Shea Hiscock as Lucas, Rhett Foster as the butler Lurch, and Adalyn Aebersold as Cousin It.

This hilarious and slightly fright-filled musical is offered thru Theatre Rights Worldwide. The Musical is based on the book by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, with Music & Lyrics by Andrew Lippa and Orchestrations by Larry Hochman. All characters created by Charles Addams. Choreography by Kimberly Reigert.
