The Addams Family

Posted by – Dale Mathes, Code Enforcement Officer

This Friday and Saturday, April 24th and 25th and May 1st and 2nd, Avondale High School will present “The Addams Family,” a musical based on characters out of the brilliant and bizarre mind of Charles Addams.

The Addams Family

Charles Addams was a cartoonist who drew for the New Yorker magazine from 1933 to 1988, when he passed away.  He left the legacy of a ghoulish family consisting of Morticia, Gomez, Fester, Wednesday, Pugsley, Grandmama, Lurch and Thing.  In 1964 through 1966, ABC ran a nighttime sitcom based on the cartoons and the characters became household names.  In 1991, a film was produced with the same wacky and weird family.  And now the musical.

The show will be held on the above dates at 7:35 p.m. at Avondale High School’s auditorium.  The school is located in Auburn Hills at 2800 Waukegan.  Prices are $5.00 and $10.00.  All seats are reserved and tickets can be purchased at the school during school hours or by contacting

So tune up the harpsichord because “it’s time to pay a call on The Addams Family” (Snap, snap.)
