TA to present ‘Adams Family’

Thornton Academy Players will present “The Addams Family,” a musical comedy, on April 6, 7, and 8 at 7 p.m. and on April 8 and 9 at 2 p.m. All tickets are $10 and the show is reserved seating. Visit http://tinyurl.com/ k866tjn to buy tickets.

In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family. The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, however, is now an 18-year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own.
