Tell me more!

The Addams Family is incredibly funny musical, with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and the book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. The show is based around the famous Addams Family characters, created by Charles Addams in his cartoons, which depict a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things eerie. Although numerous film and television adaptations of Addams’ cartoons exist, the musical is the first stage show based on the characters and received glowing Broadway reviews.

The play reintroduces the family with particular focus on the eldest daughter Wednesday, who is now a young woman instead of the dark child that audiences may remember fondly. Wednesday has found love in the form of a ‘normal” guy from Ohio, and the dilemma unfolds as she tries to introduce their two very different families. Only her father Gomez (Roger Tirazona) knows her secret. With his beloved wife Morticia (Nikki Vella) in the dark, the question remains will Gomez be able to keep his daughter’s secret? That’s until the two families meet for a memorable family dinner! The antics that follow are nothing short of hilarious, thrilling and thoroughly ridiculous- a combination sure to captivate an audience of any variety!

The musical will be held at the Mediterranean conference centre in Valletta on the 7th and 8th of March. This unique venue within itself makes a popular tourist destination. The building was initially built as a hospital in the 16th century by the Order of St. John, and it was known as the Sacra Infermeria or the Holy Infirmary. It was one of the leading hospitals in Europe until the 18th century, and it remained operating until 1920. It could keep from 500 to a staggering 2,500 patients. Nowadays the building is used for many banquets, exhibitions, international conventions and theatrical shows. For ticket info check  here !
