The McLean High School Theatre Company (MTC) kicks off its 2014-15 season with “The Addams Family” musical, opening Halloween night. Artistic Director, Amy Poe, leads this award-winning company in bringing this fun family-friendly, spooky spectacle to McLean and the greater D.C. community. “The Addams Family” runs Fridays, Saturdays evenings with Sunday Matinees, Oct. 31 – Nov. 9, beginning with the special 11 p.m. Halloween night debut. The Halloween opening show includes a costume contest beginning at 10:30 p.m.
“The Addams Family” features an original score by Andrew Lippa, and focuses on the classic Addams family antics. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. As if that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's “normal” boyfriend, Lucas, and his parents, Mal and Alice Beineke.
Santiago Alfonzo-Meza leads the MTC cast as Gomez. Helena Doms and Nora Logsdon appear as Morticia; Lily Lord and Nicole Sheehan as Wednesday. Jack Posey appears as Lucas with Rachel Lawhead and Matt Lucero appearing as Alice and Mal Beineke respectively.
