The Addams Family tours to cities including Manchester and Birmingham


The Addams Family comedy musical sees Wednesday Addams as an adult who has fallen in love with a "normal" sweet man and needs help from Gomez.

It leads to Gomez Addams keeping the secret from his wife, Morticia, which leads to all sorts of capers as it leads up to the whole family hosting a dinner for Wednesday's new boyfriend and his parents.

Directed by Matthew White, the tour starts in April 2017 and heads to theatres including the Cliffs Pavilion in Southend from May 30, Birmingham Hippodrome from June 6 and The Lowry in Salford near Manchester from August 29.

With appearances from the well-loved Addams Family characters including Uncle Fester, Lurch and Pugsley, this tour follows a successful stint in New York.

The original Broadway production, starring Nathan Lane as Gomez and Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia, ran for nearly two years at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre with international productions also shown in countries including Canada, Japan, Australia and Germany.

Music and lyrics in the show have been created by Andrew Lippa, who was also behind The Wild Party and Big Fish.
