Ghouls and gals, free your calendars and listen up. A new award-winning Broadway musical is making its way to Malta’s shores and it’s about everyone’s favourite spooky and mysterious family gang.
They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re altogether ooky… The Addams Family!
For the first time ever, the satirical 20th century American family will be hitting the Maltese stage at the Mediterranean Conference Centre for a two night exclusive show on the 7th and 8th of March!
The Addams Family is everyone’s favourite American aristocratic clan that we grew up watching… but a lot has changed since then.
Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, is all grown up and she’s gone off her family’s rails and fallen in love with a sweet young man from a respectable family.
Nothing can be worse for a family that thrives on the macabre… and only her father Gomez knows! How will he keep his secret from his beloved Morticia and the rest of the gang?
The fully-licensed Broadway musical is being shipped to Malta by Arthaus and it’s guaranteed to entertain you and hit you straight in the nostalgic feels… whether you’re a 10-year-old or a 1,000-year-old vampire.
In addition to a stellar crew and cast who have been working themselves into the grave since last year, this musical comedy offers so much more than just punchy lines and drop-dead dialogue.
You’ll be part of the family…
The creepy cast is made up of some of Malta’s top actors including Roger Tirazona as Gomez Addams, Nikki Vella as Morticia Addams, Nadia Vella as Wednesday Addams, Nikki Perry as Pugsley Addams, Noel Zarb as Uncle Fester, Sarah Jane Zrinzo as Grandma, Josef Cassar as Lurch, Emanuel Tabone as Mal Beineke, Rachel Vella as Alice Beineke and Peter Camilleri as Lucas Beineke. These will be joined by 18 Addams ancestors dating back to the beginning of time.
And managed by a top-notch creative team consisting of Artistic Director Lucienne Camilleri, Executive Producer Stefania Grech Vella, Musical Direction by Ryan Paul Abela, Vocal Coach Claire McCartin, and Choreographers Amy Caruana Dingli and Samantha Corrieri Dela.
The teams’ original costumes and incredible set design will transport you into the world of the Addams and put you side by side with Uncle Fester, Grandma Addams, and the butler Lurch.
But if there’s one thing we all love and cherish about The Addams Family, it’s the Grammy-nominated, finger-snapping theme song which will be performed by a live orchestra… along with other showstopping numbers by composer and lyricist Andrew Lippa.
A full live orchestra will be in the pit to transport you through the Addams journey as they fumble and folly through their love-entwined journey.
If you want to join in on the fun, Arthaus will be giving away two free tickets to one of their exclusive shows.
So yes, you can be one of the lucky few to witness this amazing show live… for free, which is even better!
Join the Addams at the dinner table for a night of secrets, spoofs and inevitable consequences as Gomez Addams tries his very best to keep a secret from his cherished Morticia.
