Fans of the bizarre and beloved Addams Family have reason to celebrate this August!

The GAOS Youth Group has announced that it will perform a new musical comedy version of The Addams Family on 28 -30 August 2015 at the Casino Theatre in Geneva.

Combining the twisted, macabre and just plain weird with charm, wit and enchantment, the new show will be performed by the GAOS Youth Group as a send-up of the traditional horror-story genre - the perfect show for kids!

Originally created by American cartoonist Charles Addams in 1938, the Addams characters have appeared in numerous live and animated television shows, films, video games, and more recently their own musical show, which opened on Broadway in 2010.

At the beginning of the show, you meet Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, who has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart, “regular” young man from a respectable family. The Addams family hosts a dinner for Wednesday’s new boyfriend and his parents.

Wednesday instructs her family to act normal, but from the moment Lurch ushers the guests into the mansion, Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Uncle Fester and Grandmama fail to meet the challenge – with hilarious results. Chaos ensues and Uncle Fester, trying to be helpful, instructs the Ancestors to create a sudden, terrible storm, trapping everyone in the mansion for the night – a night that will change the family forever!
