Book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Primadonna Productions. Young@Part Edition by Mark Tumminelli. Directed by Carole Dhu. Pinjarra Civic Centre, WA. July 5-6, 2019
Primadonna Productions’ youth troupe presented this very special version of The Addams Family. Young@Part productions are authorised shortened editions of musicals especially designed younger casts, including youth theatres, keeping the spirit of the show intact, while making the show more child friendly, simplifying the musical demands and giving extra tasks to the ensemble.
Primadonna’s cast ranged from 8 to 15 years of age, and worked well together, with great stage technique, excellent focus and bucket loads of enthusiasm.
