The Delightfully Ghoulish 'Addams Family' Comes to MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre Feb. 26 to March 6


West Windsor, N.J. – A generation ago, they were the quirkiest, hippest family on television. Today, they are the stars of a Broadway musical that’s coming to Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC's) Kelsey Theatre in February.

“The Addams Family,” in all its devilish and delightful absurdity, is presented by Playful Theatre Productions Fridays, February 26 and March 4 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, February 27 and March 5 at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, February 28 and March 6 at 2 p.m.

Kelsey Theatre is located on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. A reception with the cast and crew follows the opening show on Feb. 26.

Meet the Addams Family, the ghoulish misfit clan that is happily insulated from the “normal” world until darling daughter Wednesday brings home Lucas, the boy of her dreams. He’s from an upstanding Ohio family that is about to get a window into a weirder way of life when he and his parents come to dinner at the Addams’ mansion. Everyone will have to give a little – and change a little – if the young couple is going to make it work. 

First produced on Broadway in 2010, the show’s original cast starred Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth and was created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice.

The Kelsey cast stars Elio Lleo  of Princeton as Gomez Addams; Cat Tierney of Princeton as Morticia Addams; Shannen Doyle of  Kendall Park as Wednesday Addams; Josh Silverstein of Richboro, Pa., as Pugsley Addams; Justin Giachetti of Robbinsville as Uncle Fester Addams; Linda Joan Brown of Newtown, Pa., as Grandma; and Evan Bilinski of Franklin Park as Lurch. Wednesday’s boyfriend, Lucas Beineke, is played by Zach Mazouat of Bloomfield; Jaimie McMillin of Bordentown is his mom, Alice, and Kurt Penney of Pennington is his stuffy dad, Mal Beineke.

Featured in the ensemble as the ancestors are: Kaitlyn Anthony of Bordentown, Rachel Benoit of Trenton, Chris Bey of Hamilton, Vianna Fagel of Lambertville, Lucinda Fisher of Flemington, Matthew Immordino of Pennington, Eric McNeill of Yardley, Pa., Emily O’Sullivan of Hamilton, Sasha Saco of Hamilton, and Liam Smith of Yardley, Pa.

The production team includes Director Frank Ferrara, Musical Director Shannon Ferrara, Associate Musical Director Michael Gilch, Stage Managers Ruth Kresge and Nancy Scharf, Producers Hilary Leboff and Suzanne Smith and Choreographer Rachel Tovar.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for senior citizens, and $16 for students and children. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-570-3333.
