Addams Family cast

Leeds Center for the Arts presents the new musi­cal The Addams Family, August 12–14, 19–21, and 26–28, 2022. Directed by Laurie Preston, music direct­ed by Steve Crosby, chore­o­graphed by Ellie Miller, and fea­tur­ing a cast of twen­ty-six actors from all over Central Kentucky, The Addams Family fea­tures show-stop­ping song and dance, hilar­i­ous mishaps, and everyone’s favorite spooky, kooky, and all-togeth­er ooky fam­i­ly with lots of heart.

This orig­i­nal sto­ry fea­tures Wednesday Addams, the ulti­mate princess of dark­ness, who 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 wasn’t upset­ting enough, Wednesday 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.

“We are thrilled to be pro­duc­ing Addams Family, our first sum­mer musi­cal in almost three years!” says Tracey Miller, the show’s pro­duc­er and Board President at Leeds. “Putting on a large-scale show like this is no easy feat!

“I had for­got­ten what a joy and a chal­lenge it is to pro­duce a show of such mag­ni­tude, but hap­py to say that our cre­ative team is the best. And I can’t begin to thank all of our
out­side vol­un­teers that help to make our shows come to life. We are grate­ful for the peo­ple who build our set, make the weird props, cre­ate cos­tumes, style wigs, and glue all the
creepy things on Grandma’s potions cart so that it looks believ­able. I also have to give a huge shout-out to our stage man­agers, sound and light engi­neers, direc­tor,
chore­o­g­ra­ph­er, and music direc­tor, who have worked togeth­er to cre­ate such a beau­ti­ful show. 

“And final­ly, the cast! These won­der­ful and tal­ent­ed peo­ple from four dif­fer­ent
coun­ties have ded­i­cat­ed them­selves to cre­at­ing a jaw-drop­ping show that is fun­ny, quirky, and a show that you do not want to miss!”

The Addams Family reminds us that the love we share for our fam­i­ly, our chil­dren, and each oth­er is uni­ver­sal… even if it is a lit­tle creepy, kooky, and all-togeth­er ooky.
