In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and suffering is the stuff of dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus of Lippa, Brickman, and Elice’s musical: the Addams kids are growing up. Join us this summer for a hilarious hauntingly good time where even the strangest families eerily resemble our own.

Tuition: $499 ($449 w/ 10% Member/Sibling discount)
