The Addams Family

the-addams-familyEach year the Mount Anthony Union High School delights the community with a musical production. In the past they have done The Wizard of Oz, Urinetown and The Little Shop of Horrors among other productions. Tim Foley and Lynn Sweet are the co-directors. We had the pleasure of interviewing some of the students who are in the upcoming production of The Addams Family. The Addams family was the creation of Charles Addams in cartoons for The New Yorker Magazine. It was then a television show, a film with Raul Julia and Angelica Houston and  then, a musical with Nathan Lane heading the weird and wonderful family.

Starting on October 29, the Addams Family will be in action once more in a production at the Mount Anthony Union High school. Four of the students who are acting and singing in it talked with us about the production which will be at the high school on Thursday and Friday at seven o’clock  and Saturday at two and eight o’clock. Our guests were Sebastian Durfee, MaryHope Coffield, Amara Armstrong and Maria Saladar. Sebastian plays Gomez, MaryHope and Maria alternate the role of Wednesday and Amara plays Pugsley. They also shared their experiences as students in the Mount Anthony Drama Club. Addams_Family_sketch_Charles_Addams
