Addams Family spotted in Carouge! Family entertainment
The Really Youthful Group section of the Geneva Amateur Operatic Society will perform “The Addams Family” at the Casino Theatre in Carouge on Friday 28th, Saturday 29th, Sunday 30th August.
Synopsis below (by GAOS)
The musical combines the twisted, macabre and just plain weird with charm, wit and enchantment. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart, “normal” young man from a respectable family. The Addams family hosts a dinner for Wednesday’s new boyfriend and his parents. Wednesday instructs her family to act normal, but from the moment Lurch ushers the guests into the mansion, Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Uncle Fester and Grandmama fail to meet the challenge — with hilarious results. Chaos ensues and Uncle Fester, trying to be helpful, instructs the Ancestors to create a sudden, terrible storm, trapping everyone in the mansion for the night — a night that will change the family forever. The Addams Family by the GAOS Youth Group is a send-up of the traditional horror-story genre — perfect for kids of all ages.
