When his daughter Wednesday begs her father Gomez not to tell her mother Morticia (Bobby Goldyn), he is forced to lie to his wife. Everything will change for the whole family at the fateful dinner they throw for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

“We’re thrilled to be able to do this full-scale musical again,” said David Ward, director and choreographer. “Our cast is exceptional not only in terms of talent but also in attitude. They come to rehearsals eager, wanting to do well and motivated.

“’The Addams Family’ will be especially enjoyable for high school students with its lively characters and relatable storyline. We look forward to welcoming audiences back to the ʻAʻaliʻikūhonua Center for the Creative Arts for this musical.
