Woodside High School Theatre Arts Department Presents The Addams Family a New Musical Comedy

Woodside High School Theatre Arts Department Presents

The Addams Family a New Musical Comedy


Woodside High School presents the production of The Addams Family, a new musical comedy, with five performances March 13th/14th/15th and 20th/21st, 2020 at the Woodside High School Performing Arts Center, 199 Churchill Avenue, Woodside CA.


Tickets are available online (www.WHSdramaboosters.org).


Based off of the classic Addams’ cartoon characters and the vintage TV series, The Addams Family is every father’s nightmare: 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. And if that isn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. But then, what is normal? As Morticia says, “Normal is an illusion…What’s normal for the spider is a calamity for the fly.”


The Woodside High School production of The Addams Family is sure to have you laughing with a cast of 40 students, along with a full, live orchestra to highlight the excitement of the ghoulish score. The orchestra includes 9 student musicians and over a dozen students working behind the scenes on the tech crew.


Woodside High School musicals frequently sell out and this one is a surefire crowd pleaser so buy your tickets quickly at http://www.WHSdramaboosters.org.

Teach kindness, courtesy, respect, and friendship: It was the perfect summer. That is, until Jeremy Ross moved into the house down the street and became neighborhood enemy number one.

In this funny yet endearing story one little boy learns an effective recipe for turning a best enemy into a best friend. Accompanied by charming illustrations, Enemy Pie serves up a sweet lesson in the difficulties and ultimate rewards of making new friends.
  • The perfect book for kids learning how to make friends or deal with conflict
