About The Addams Family – A New Musical

THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Gonzaga College High School

The Gonzaga Dramatic Association (GDA) stages two shows each academic year—one in the fall and one in the spring. Over the years, the GDA has staged everything from comedies and dramas to mysteries and musicals. Its members are involved in every aspect of the productions—they build and paint sets, design and sew costumes, serve as stage managers, operate the spotlights, and, of course, act, sing, and dance on stage.

All of the GDA's performances take place in Gonzaga’s Sheehy Theater, the oldest continually-operating theater in the original federal district of Washington. Built in 1896, it has hosted at least one production every year since. In 2013, the 800-seat theater was completely renovated, incorporating state-of-the-art technology and equipment as well as a two-story Theater Arts Center with a set construction shop and mirrored rehearsal space.
