Notre Dame College performing The Addams Family Musical this month.JOHN LEWIS July 2, 2014 3:55am
Starring in Notre Dame College's production of The Addams Family Musical are Natasha Jenkins (Grandma), Caitlyn Trotter (Wednesday), Justin Dohrman (Gomez), Jayden Yosh (Lurch), Phoebe Newman, (Morticia), Nick Murdoch (Pugsley), Tom Sargent (Uncle Fester) and Emily Balaburov (Cousin Itt).
Wacky costumes, spooky people and plenty of singalong tunes add up to a creepy cellar-load of fun in Notre Dame College’s next school show.
The Addams Family Musical features a 50-strong cast from across all year levels who will sing and dance their way through the characters and stories made famous by Charles Addams’ original American cartoon series from the 1930s.
The cartoons have been turned into successful television, film and stage shows ever since the 1960s.
Notre Dame students will this month bring to ghoulish life all the well-known characters, including Uncle Fester, Gomez, Morticia, Cousin Itt, Lurch, Grandmama, Pugsley and Wednesday.
The plot centres on the Addams family’s ‘‘weird’’ Wednesday, played by Caitlyn Trotter, who falls in love with ‘‘normal’’ Lucas Beineke, played by Alex Garla.
Drama teacher and show director Dayna Tinline said although the show was based on popular comedy characters, it had valuable underlying themes of tolerance.
‘‘It’s really about what’s normal and being who you are. The Addams family might be a bit strange, but they are who they are and they love each other,’’ Ms Tinline said. ‘‘In the end, love conquers all and the message is ‘keep no secrets’.’’
Phoebe Newman, 17, who plays Morticia, said the show was a fun ride from the opening scene.
‘‘Right from the start there’s kookiness and spookiness,’’ she said.
Live music will be played by a 12-member orchestra of staff and students.
