The Addams Family: Can We Just Act Normal? Featured

Lynne LaMaster
A family favorite returns to the stage - with a bit of a wicked twist.

Depending on your age, you may have fond memories of gathering around the television and watching a black & white show called, The Addams Family.

Well, now you can fast-forward about 50 years or so, and relive that experience. Sort of. After all, it’s been a bit updated.

The Addams Family is playing this month in musical format at the Prescott Center for the Arts Theatre in Prescott. But, as mentioned, the Addams family has grown up - now their kids are teenagers. Yikes! It’s every parents’ nightmare, and 18-year-old Wednesday Addams is in love. 

A looming dinner with the family of the love-interest has Wednesday requesting, “Then, can we all just act normal?” 

To which her mother, Morticia Addams, replies coyly, “Normal is an illusion, darling."

The Prescott Center for the Arts always puts on quality performances and this show is no different. You’ll come away with a macabre grin and maybe a hankering to look up The Addams Family on YouTube just to relive a few memories.
