The senior group of the Alnwick Playhouse Youth Theatre is preparing to tackle its last big production for 2015.

The extremely popular group, which has been performing shows for more than 15 years, has been making plans since September to put on the show.

The Addams Family: The Musical will be performed by the talented youngsters and is one of the first young groups in the country to perform the show since amateur licensing became available.

The story centres on Wednesday Addams who has fallen in love with a young man from a respectable family, who has never met her parents and she never wants him to. She confides in her father Gomez but swears him to secrecy but everything changes the night both families get together for dinner.

When they arrive for dinner, under protest, Wednesday states that the whole family must try to act normal so they can all enjoy a simple meal.

The production is being staged by youngsters from the senior group the playhouse’s own youth theatre, under the director of Sarah McLane and Jo Potts. Peter Brown is to return as musical director and Joanne Burn will choreograph.

It will be staged on Friday, December 4 and Saturday, December 5, at 7pm and at 2pm on the Saturday. Tickets are £8.50, premier and £7.50. For details, visit www.alnwickplayhouse.co.uk
