Notes From The Director


When I was young, I enjoyed sitting down to watch the antics of the Addams clan as they brought the joy of their off-beat world into my life.   They were goth long before goth was a thing.  Their slightly macabre view of life was completely foreign to me, yet  somehow I was able to relate.  The Addams Family Musical brings these delightful characters to a new generation and it our great pleasure to share it with you tonight.  


For those of you who have never had the privilege of working on a musical, I can tell you that it is a huge undertaking that requires our time, creativity and some very hard work...and we love every minute of it.   It has been a pleasure to see the pieces come together.   For those of you who have cast members in your family, I hope you know how delightful they are.   The process that we started six weeks ago is about to pay off with a terrific performance from these talented young people.


Thank you, cast, staff, crew and volunteers.  Your efforts have been amazing.  Thank you administration for keeping the arts in their lives.  Thank you, chorus boosters for making it all possible.  And finally, thank you to our wonderful audience.  Without all of you, we wouldn't be here.

Notes From The Producer


It is my sincere privilege to have worked with such committed and hard-working students for the 2018 production of The Addams Family at Abingdon High School.


Theatre gives students the opportunity to express themselves and avenues of humanity in character choices and stimulates creativity.  With the pressure of original ideas in whatever career path they take after high school, imagination is most definitely pushed and is excellent preparation for this part of their future.  Through small successes, genuine confidence is built in learning limits as well as discovering potential.



Whether a student is part of cast or crew, these memories will last for a lifetime because teamwork is established, give and take is present, and an environment of thinking is in constant orbit.  Thank you for your presence at this performance and supporting the arts at Abingdon.
