In June 2023, InSPE’s adaptation of the hit Broadway musical THE ADDAMS FAMILY was in full swing! With a talented cast, live orchestra, beautiful sets and spectacular effects, you didn’t want to miss this humorous macabre musical!
The eccentric Addams Family is alive and well! The passionate Gomez (Ivo da Silva) and his wife, the stunningly beautiful Morticia (Juliana Zijlstra), their dark ‘darlings’ Wednesday (Sem Verhaere) and Pugsley (Iris Snellenburg), Uncle Fester (Brad Hillas), Grandma (Sam Molenkamp) and of course butler Lurch (Victor Rijnders) step out of the darkness and exchange their macabre villa for a dark comedy in the theatre. Daughter Wednesday Addams has grown up and carries a shocking secret. She is in love with Lucas (Alec Zirnheld), an ordinary boy who, to make matters worse, comes from a ‘normal’ family! She only shares the secret with her father Gomez, who has never hidden anything from his beloved Morticia. When Lucas and his parents, Mal (Ryan Wakamiya) and Alice (Charlotte Büscher) are invited to an introductory dinner, the truth comes out. The full moon shines, the ghosts and statues awaken and love is tested on all fronts.
The musical comedy The Addams Family is based on the characters created by Charles Addams. Music and lyrics were written by Andrew Lippa, who also wrote the script, music and lyrics for the Drama Desk award winning musical The Wild Party. Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice co-wrote the script for the multi-award-winning Broadway musical Jersey Boys. Marshall Brickman won five Tony Awards in 2012.
After nine months of hard work, rehearsing tirelessly, building decor, making costumes, and setting up special effects and makeup, InSPE brought The Addams Family Musical to the Theaterhotel Almelo stage! here is an impression of what our production of The Addams Family Musical was like!
