THE ADDAMS FAMILY

  • IPSWICH CIVIC CENTRE
  • WEDNESDAY-THURSDAY-FRIDAY, July 20-21-22

Our favourite American family is back, more macabre and twisted than ever.

However, this time, to the shock and disgust of all, Gomez and Morticia's teenage daughter Wednesday is experiencing some unexpected feelings … she has fallen in love.

The object of her affection is Lucas Beineke, and he and his parents are coming to dinner at the Addams' family manor to become better acquainted.

The usual suspects: eccentric patriarch Gomez, a sultry Morticia, a mischievous Pugsley, a bumbling uncle Fester, a mad grandma, and a gloomy butler (or is he a zombie?), come together to make this meet and greet a fateful night to remember in their attempt to be a normal family.

Join us for a magnificently morbid night at the theatre as all your much-loved characters come out to play.

Adult $30, concession $20, primary school child $15, family (2 adults & 2 children) $75, group 6+ $25.
