Theater Directors Andrea and Rob Kennedy and their Theater kids on the plane.

It’s become somewhat of a tradition at Amity High School. In the Theater Department, after 6 months of daily rehearsals, a dress rehearsal before a small audience, and 5 performances before a full house, a cast party after the final show, and plenty of tears, the group takes a full day on Sunday to recuperate, then they head off to New York for an early morning flight to Disney World in Orlando, Fla., where they will perform onstage for Disney guests, and maybe have time to take in some of the sights.

This year’s cast of “The Addams Family” flew out this morning for their latest adventure.

We hope they are having better weather during this April Vacation than we’ve got here in CT.

Have a safe flight and have fun!

Orange Live will have updates on this trip in the coming days.

They arrived safely on Monday afternoon.

The Amity troupe will perform at Disney Springs on Thursday, April 19 at 5 p.m.
