“The Addams Family” is a musical based on the comic strip, TV show, and movies about the Addams Family. They are an unusual family in many ways but fiercely devoted to each other.
“Everyone loves musicals!” exclaimed Mike Yocum, Grace College professor of communication and director of this fall’s play. “Plus, The Addams Family allowed us to use a large number of performers in the ensemble and we had the right people for the larger roles. It’s funny, has great music, and is a delightful choice for our Grace audiences.”
Ethan Roberts, a junior who plays the role of Uncle Fester said, “The music is fun, the costumes are great, and the production itself is very funny and upbeat. I think anyone of any age could enjoy this show.”
Yocum agreed with Roberts, “the music is very catchy and fun to sing.” As director of the Grace fall musicals, Yocum never grows tired of watching the actors develop fun and interesting characters, “And this year is no exception,” he said.
