Huntington Playhouse announces final production

The cast of "The Addams Family," which runs through Nov. 15. "Christmas at Aunt Ida’s” will begin Dec. 3.

The current show at Huntington Playhouse is the musical “The Addams Family.” Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. with a matinee on Sunday, Nov. 15, at 2 p.m.

This musical 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. 

The theatre is also pleased to announce that “Christmas at Aunt Ida’s” will be the final show of the 2015 season. Retired Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Dick Feagler penned an endearing Christmas story about a simpler time in Cleveland after World War II when the men came home, the women returned to the kitchen, and the kids dreamed of Santa Claus. This adaptation, by Anne McEvoy, brings all those characters to life including Uncle Stanley, Aunt Ida and a young Dick Feagler.

Opening on Dec. 3, and playing through Dec. 20, this production had its world premier on the Huntington Playhouse stage in 2005.

Reservations are suggested and may be made by calling 440-871-8333. Huntington Playhouse is located at 28601 Lake Road in Bay Village.
