"The Addams Family," based on the bizarre and beloved family of characters created by legendary cartoonist Charles Addams, will be coming to Peabody Auditorium on Saturday, May 3, as part of the Broadway in Daytona Beach series.
"The Addams Family," which began performances in March 2010 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre and ran through December 2011, immediately became one of Broadway's biggest hits.
It features an original story and it's every father's nightmare. 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 weren't upsetting enough, she confides in her father and 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.
In a prolific career spanning six decades, Charles Addams created several thousand cartoons, sketches and drawings, many of which were published in The New Yorker. But it was his creation of the characters that came to be known as The Addams Family that brought him his greatest acclaim. With a unique style that combined the twisted, macabre and just plain weird with charm, wit and enchantment, Addams' drawings have entertained millions worldwide and served as the inspiration for multiple television series and motion pictures.
Tickets for The Addams Family can be purchased online at ticketmaster.com, charge-by-phone (800) 745-3000 or at the Peabody Auditorium Box Office.
