In the musical comedy, Wednesday Addams, played by senior Sadie Owens, has grown up and fallen in love with a normal young man. Lucas Beineke, played by junior Logan Bergert.  The family senses something is wrong when dower and gloomy Wednesday suddenly shows signs of happiness.  How will the family ever cope with this strange turn of events?  The family members and ancestors, led by Gomez and Morticia Addams, portrayed by freshman Ethan Knop and senior Nikole McGee, open the doors to their Central Park mansion to meet the seemingly normal Beineke parents, portrayed by seniors Logan Bennett and Ariel Bryan, and their son.  The plot thickens when family members Fester, played by senior Sam Woods, Grandma, played by Geordan Lancaster, Pugsley, played by Zoyie Greene, and loyal butler Lurch, played by Ethan Lee, all join in the madness that can happen on one supposedly normal night in New York City.  Will love conquer all?  Join us for this slightly crazy look at two "typical" American families who just want their kids to be happy.  Directed by Stefanie Fatzinger and Amy Bush.   THE ADDAMS FAMILY A NEW MUSICAL Book by MARSHALL BRICKMAN and RICK ELICE Music and Lyrics by ANDREW LIPPA Based on Characters Created by Charles Addams Originally produced on Broadway by Stuart Oken, Roy Furman, Michael Leavitt, Five Cent Productions, Stephen Schuler, Decca Theatricals, Scott M.
