THE ADDAMS FAMILY will be playing at the Derby Dinner Playhouse through April 9th. This macabre-loving production, straight from Broadway, will have the audience reminiscing of days after school, watching this beloved TV show. Expect new twists and turns, as you see the entire Addams family like never before!

THE ADDAMS FAMILY was based off of cartoon characters by Charles Addams, with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and a book by Marshall Brickmann and Rick Elice . Expect to hear fantastic musical numbers like When You're An Addams”, “Wednesday's Growing Up”, “Pulled”, “The Moon and Me”, and many more!

 THE ADDAMS FAMILY is directed by Lee Buckholz with musical direction by Scott Bradley and choreography by Heather Paige Folsom. The cast will include Bobby Conte, Isabel Nesyi, Chris Bryant, Kaylee Annable, Cary Wiger, Aidan Singleton, Elizabeth Loos, Mitchell Lewis and more.

The stage is completely filled with huge dance numbers, performed by the Addams Family Ancestors, filled with just the right amount of humor to keep the audience laughing. Conti and Neysi are phenomenal as Gomez and Morticia, while the all-grown-up Wednesday (Annable) steals the show with her clear, resounding vocals and passion for the role. Of course, Derby Dinner favorites, Loos and Wiger, provide their familiar comedy, bringing warmth and laughter to the stage.

The Derby Dinner Playhouse is located in Clarksville, Indiana... right over the bridge from Louisville, Kentucky. It is a theater in the round, and has been in operation since 1974, making it one of the oldest and largest continuously operating theatres in the country!

You will always receive a top notch production for your ticket price, along with a mouth-watering meal, served buffet style, boasting favorites like fried catfish, mouth-watering pasta selections and a meat carving station.
