Meet the Addams Family

Directed by Katie Bissinger, a group of Highlands actors in middle and high school presented The Addams Family: A New Musical Comedy, at the Philipstown Depot Theatre in Garrison in five sold-out shows from July 26 to 29. Inspired by the musical that ran on Broadway in 2010 and 2011 (originally with Nathan Lane as Gomez and Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia), which was based on characters created by cartoonist Charles Addams, the show follows daughter Wednesday as she falls for a sweet, “normal” guy.
