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.

“Act well your part, there all honor lies.” -Thespian Motto
Waynesville High School is home to one of the most comprehensive high school theatre programs in the state of Missouri. The WHS Theatre Department offers a Basic Survey and History of Theatre Course (Theatre I), a Basic Acting Course (Theatre II), a Theatre Technology Course (Theatre III), Ensemble Acting and Directing Course (Theatre IV), and a Pre-professional and College Readiness Course (Intensified Theatre). These courses combined with the production of quality high school plays and musicals that provide dramatic, technical, and management experiences for our students, produce a rewarding experience in the theatre arts. Our goal is to produce plays that are as professional as the age and appearance of the cast will permit. Students, who qualify, can join the International Thespian Society, an honor society for high school theatre students and a division of the Educational Theatre Association. Those students can participate in the Missouri State Thespian Conference. The department produces two full-length plays or musicals a year. Students have the opportunity to direct a one act play through the Theatre IV course and participate in the MSHSAA District Speech Tournament in the one act play competition.
