‘Kooky, spooky, ooky’ musical at NCHS

“They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re altogether ooky!” The Broadway musical sensation The Addams Family will be on stage at Nelson County High School’s auditorium April 27 – 30. Performances are at 7 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday, April 27, 28, and 29. The curtain will rise at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 30.

Make plans to attend the show that Bloomberg News declared, “Uproarious! A glitzy-gloomy musical entirely worthy of the macabre drawings by Charles Addams.”

Scene from The Addams Family

Gomez (sophomore Robbie Moran), left, and Morticia Addams (senior Haley Abell) dance together in this scene from The Addams Family during a dress rehearsal at Nelson County High School.

From the creators of the Jersey Boys, Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and Drama Desk Award-winning composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa, the delightfully mysterious world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley, Itt and Lurch comes to spectacular life in this all new story. The comically morbid family is put to the test when outsiders, the Beineke family, come to dinner hurling them into a night that will change their lives forever.
