The Addams Family UK Tour

Addams Family UK Tour

Matthew White will direct a new tour of The Addams Family. The musical will take in the UK and Ireland will commence in April 2017.

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and has a shocking secret that only Gomez knows; she’s fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family! Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. All the usual clan are present – Uncle Fester, Lurch, Pugsley et al.

The UK Tour will star Samantha Womack, Les Dennie and Carrie Hope Fletcher as Morticia, Fester and WednesdayAddams with further casting to be announced.

The original Broadway production, starring Nathan Lane as Gomez and Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia, ran for just under two years at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. The production also toured the US and international productions have been seen in Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Japan, Australia, Germany and the Czech Republic.

The Addams Family has a book by Marshall Brickman (Annie Hall, Manhattan), and Rick Elice (Peter And The Starcatcher, Jersey Boys), with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party, Big Fish). The show is produced by United Theatrical, Aria Entertainment and Music and Lyrics Limited in association with the Edinburgh Festival Theatre.

Casting and further venues are to be announced.
