The musical adaptation shows beloved character Wednesday Addams all grown up. The ultimate princess of darkness has now fallen in love with a nice young man who comes from a respectable family. Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother, forcing Gomez to keep a secret from his wife, Morticia. The Addams Family will then host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents, in which, life-altering events take place.

The Addams Family will be performed by NTPA’s Repertory Theatre. The Repertory Theatre is the professional adult theatre company within the 501(c)3 non-profit North Texas Performing Arts family of theatres. Their mission is to deliver professional-quality theatrical entertainment that inspires audiences and empowers artists from Broadway to the suburbs. Earlier this year, the NTPA Repertory was named Best Adult Theatre Company of Plano.
