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.

Amity HIgh SchoolParent-Teacher Conferences at Amity High School were cancelled last week due to a plumbing problem.

On Friday, Principal Charles Britton announced that the rescheduled conference date was Tuesday, December 16. 

Today, Britton sent out a new notice, stating: “December 16 is the first night of Chanukah. It would be inconsiderate to hold parent conferences on the first night of Chanukah. So, the new rescheduled date for parent conferences will be Monday, December 15 from 5 – 7:30 p.m. If you are unable to keep your parent conference, please go back into Virtual Paragon by clicking Virtual Paragon, and cancel your appointment so that other parents may access the spot. The master password necessary to register in the system is “studentreport.” I apologize for the confusion.”

The Amity Girls Varsity Volleyball Team hosted Trumbull in an Exhibition Round on Tuesday, Sept. 3.

Even though many of the stars of last year’s phenomenal team graduated in June, this year’s team looks strong with the same kind of camaraderie as before.

One player to watch, who did well in this game was Micaela Cardozo, who spent most of last year on the bench.

It looks like Coach Paul Thees has another great team to work with again this year, and we look forward to seeing how far they will go.

The girls lost the first game 20-25, but came on strong for the second game defeating Trumbull 25-19.
