DePauw University hosts multiple theatrical plays throughout the school year, running during extended weekends from Thursday through Sunday. The Monroe Theatre in the Green Center for Performing Arts is home to many of the School of Music’s productions including these events. First up during the Fall Semester, it’s “The Addams Family!”
They’re a little kooky, but the Addams — Morticia, Gomez, Fester, Pugsley, Grandma, Lurch and Thing — believe in “family first and family last.” So, when daughter Wednesday becomes secretly engaged to Lucas, her family reluctantly agrees to host a dinner party for his very conservative parents. Join this spooky esprit de corpse — along with the ghosts of the Addams ancestors — as they try to pull off “one normal night” for Wednesday and the prospective in-laws!
