The 63rd annual Bedford High School musical is described as “a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family.”

The Performing Arts Department will present “THE ADDAMS FAMILY – A NEW MUSICAL” on Wednesday-Saturday, March 13-16, in Buckley Auditorium at BHS. Performances begin at 4:30 p.m. March 13 and at 7 p.m. the other days. There is also a 1 p.m. Saturday matinee.

About 80 students are participating as members of the cast, pit orchestra, and production crew. Katrina Faulstich, choral and theater director, again is in charge of the annual musical.

Tickets will be available beginning Monday through the Performing Arts Department website, https://bhschorusandtheater.weebly.com/tickets.html. Tickets are $14 per adult and $12 per student and senior adult. Tickets will be sold at the door only if seating is available. 

“THE ADDAMS FAMILY – A NEW MUSICAL” is described as an original story, although the characters are familiar from the television series “The Addams Family” of the 1960s. The musical’s debut on Broadway was in 2010. The name is for Charles Addams, a prolific cartoonist for The New Yorker whose work occasionally featured a macabre family.

The Performing Arts Department offers the following synopsis: “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. Wednesday confides in her father Gomez and begs him not to tell her mother Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.”

The show is considered appropriate for audiences of at least middle-school age. At BHS, it will run approximately two-and-a-half hours with one intermission.
