Broadway Palm’s ‘Addams Family’ embraces every family’s wackiness


The Addams Family takes over the Broadway Palm main stage through May 25. This comical feast embraces the wackiness in every family and features an original story about love, family, honesty and growing up.

They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re all together ooky, and now they star in a hilariously ghoulish musical in which 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 that she’s agreed to marry him but 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 … and play The Game.

The Addams Family first came into existence as a series of cartoons in The New Yorker, but the creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky family became known ’round the nation when the TV adaptation premiered. Characters like Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Grandmama, Wednesday and Pugsley all come to life in the stage production, which premiered on Broadway in 2010. The musical has been a fan favorite on the theatrical scene ever since.

Performances are Wednesday through Sunday April 12 through May 25, with matinee, evening and twilight performances. Tickets range from $60 to $85 per person, with group discounts available for parties of 20 or more. Go here to purchase tickets, call (239) 278-4422, or visit us at 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers.
