Sound interesting? Then the Addams Family musical is one that you would not want to miss. You all most likely know the television show, The Addams Family. It could be one of your childhood favorites, or maybe it’s just a name that you know. Either way, the Broadway musical is like the TV show, but with song and dance and characters that are now grown.

The Millburn Middle School shows have been a highlight of the school year for a long time, with past productions including shows like Little Shop of Horrors, The Little Mermaid, and Shrek.

This particular show begins in a graveyard. The Addams family, including Morticia and Gomez, the parents, Wednesday and Pugsley, the children, the nameless grandma of the family, and Fester, the “fat bald person”, summon their ancestors from beyond the grave. The plot revolves around Fester and the ancestors trying to get love between Wednesday and her boyfriend, Lucas, to prevail.

We asked some of the cast members some questions about the experience, and this is what they said:

Q: Why did you decide to do the play?

A: I enjoy acting a lot. (Ben L.)

Q: How do you manage your schoolwork with the increasing number of rehearsals?

A: I study during play practice when I am not needed at the moment. (Camila H.)

Q: What is your favorite song to perform in the show?

A: Personally, my favorite song to perform in the show is the opening number, “When You’re an Addams.” It’s just really fun to be on stage with everybody dancing while Tamir is calling out the next dance. (Bridget L.)

Q: What is the best part about being in the play?

The friendships formed in the cast. (Lily F.)

Q: What is the best reason people should come see the play?

All of the people who are participating are working really hard to make it a great show for the audience. (Kendal W.)
