A Ghoulishly Good Time. The Addams Family Broadway Musical


Charles Addams' weird and wonderful family comes to devilishly delightful life in a new musical comedy coming to the Niswonger on Friday, January 31 at 7:30 PM. Presented by Dark Horse Productions, this magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Drama Desk Award winner Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys), and Olivier Award-winning original directors and designers Phelim McDermott & Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter) with direction by four-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks.

THE ADDAMS FAMILY features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. 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. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she 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 and his parents.

Come meet the family. We'll leave the lights off for you. TICKETS range from $22-$47 and are released for sale on Thursday, October 31 at noon. The Box Office is open from noon - 4:00 PM, Monday-Friday and is located at 10700 SR 118S, Van Wert, OH. Tickets are always available online at
