Timber Lake Playhouse will hold auditions for the All Area Teen Production of The Addams Family on Friday, May 17 from 6:00 until 9:00 and Saturday, May 18 from 10:00 until 4:00 at the theatre on Black Oak Road south of Mt. Carroll.
The Addams Family features an original story, and it’s 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 weren’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.
Performances are July 8 at 7:30 and July 9, 11, 12, & 13 at 2:00. The Addams Family is directed by Education Director, Robert McFletcher-Jones.
