On September 8, Orange Live posted Rob Kennedy’s announcement that the 2018 Amity Spring Musical will be “The Addams Family.”

If you are reading this, then you are familiar with Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Thing, and my personal favorite, Cousin Itt.

The Amity Creative Theater Department began auditioning actors for the production on Tuesday, January 2, and Director Rob Kennedy is extremely enthusiastic about it.

During a break during the girls’ basketball game, Kennedy said, “They’re practicing the dance moves now.”

A huge smile came across everyone’s favorite retired teacher Debbie Davis’s face as she demonstrated the “Bunny Hop” for Athletic Director Ernie Goodwin in the corner of the gym. — Oh to see the two of them on stage as guests at one of the Addams’s fabulous balls!

“It’s going to be fun,” Kennedy said.

He added that many of the theater students graduated last year, so there is a large pool of fresh faces for theatergoers to discover and enjoy, starting with this production.

So come on, sing along

They’re creepy and they’re kooky,
mysterious and spooky,
They’re all together ooky,
The Addams Family

And get ready to see the Amity production of the Addams Family Musical this Spring!

I can’t wait to see what Dan Hassenmayer comes up with for the lighting on this show.
