Fly away to Neverland with Peter, Tinker Bell, and the Darling children in Disney’s adaptation of their beloved animated film.

Their adventure introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook.

Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie’s enchanting play, Disney’s PETER PAN is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn’t grow up.

THE ADDAMS FAMILYADDAMS FAMILY

November 14-23, 2014

Book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice
Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Based on the Characters Created by Charles Addams

DIRECTED BY KEITH WEIRICH
MUSICAL DIRECTION BY HENRY KOPCZYNSKIE III
CHOREOGRAPHY BY VALERIE PSOINOS NELSON

THE ADDAMS FAMILY is a ghoulishly funny new musical comedy with an original story – that is every father’s nightmare.

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. 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.

With a unique comedic style that combines the twisted, macabre and just plain weird with charm, wit and enchantment, THE ADDAMS FAMILY is quite off-the-wall… but then again… what family isn’t?
