Book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. Music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Stage Artz (Sydney). Zenith Theatre, Chatswood. April 4 – 12, 2014.
Just over twelve months since a stylish professional production opened and closed prematurely in Sydney, community theatres are getting their chance to take a bite from the Addams apple.
In many ways this sort of musical is more suitable for community theatre than the professional scene in Australia.
Relatively easy tunes to master, an assortment of different shapes and sizes and ages in the cast, in a production that has familiar TV characters in it, makes this a show which is fun to rehearse and perform.
