Amity Creative Theater presents “The Addams Family Musical” for its 2018 Spring production.  

That lovable family of creepy kooks is alive and well and living in their super-spooky mansion in Central Park.

The Addams family, led by the elegantly gaunt and seemingly undead Morticia and her ever-devoted husband Gomez, is in turmoil. Their daughter Wednesday, now 18, finds herself falling in love—a sensation that is unsettling for both her and her family of endearing misfits.

When the teen invites her new boyfriend, Lucas Beineke, over with his “normal” family to get better acquainted with the Addams household, comic chaos ensues.

The hilarious Broadway musical smash comes to Amity April 6, 7, 12, 13, 14. All performances begin at 8 p.m. All tickets are $18, obviously, a bargain, seeing that the center seating areas from the stage to the back wall are nearly all sold out. 

There appear to be plenty of seats remaining on the left and right sides. Order yours today by clicking HERE.

Amity High School is located at 25 Newton Road, Woodbridge, CT.

Recently, Orange Live sat in on a rehearsal with the lead actors — the Addams’ and their butler Lurch — Watch this Video to meet the actors and get a sneak peek at one of the scenes.

CT High School Musical Theater Awards Night – Guilford’s Sweeney Was King

We all love the Amity Spring Musicals, the singing, the dancing, the acting, lighting, sets, and music, but evidently, the judges for the Connecticut High School Musical Theater Awards (CHSMTA) thought that Guilford’s production of Sweeney Todd was just “this much” better.

Of its 13 nominations, including its eighth nomination for outstanding musical production, Amity took home one award and ONE very special recognition, but no trophy.

Our own Yuliya Faryna won the Outstanding Supporting Actress award for her role as Golde (the mother) in Fiddler on the Roof.

And CHSMTA founder Brett A. Bernardini took time out from the Outstanding Student Achievement announcements to recognize Amity’s Harrison Paek for his work in the Arts in Education Student Achievement category.

Even though Harrison didn’t receive an award, he did have an opportunity to make a very well thought out speech.

Maybe I’m just partial to our Amity students, but I believe Eric Greenbaum, Tevye from Fiddler on The Roof, brought the house down when he performed “If I Were A Rich Man.” Thunderous applause and a standing ovation followed his song. (Not all of the Lead Actor Nominees received the same awesome reaction). He is a winner in my eyes.

The cast performed the “dream” sequence, including the towering ghost, also getting a standing ovation from their peers and the entire audience.

What do they say, “It doesn’t matter if you win, just being nominated is enough.” (?)

Although we always hope for more, there was an awful lot of talent on the Palace Theater stage on Monday night and Amity was well represented. Principal Anna Mahon did a terrific job making an award presentation.

Congratulations to Yuliya and Harrison for your honors, and to everyone that won awards.

To the Amity Theater Department as a whole, congratulations on all of your nominations. You deserved every one.

Until next year.
