City Academy Stages Broadway Smash Hit Musical Comedy

City Academy Stages Broadway Smash Hit Musical Comedy

They snapped their fingers! Everyone’s favourite creepy and kooky family hit the stage in a frighteningly funny and fresh production of The Addams Family starring the brilliantly talented students from City Academy.

Performed over two nights to packed houses, this magnificently macabre musical comedy was supported by a cast and crew of more than 50 students from Year 7 to Year 10. That included Jason Menhinnitt from Year 9, who successfully managed the stage management team.

Students worked extremely hard to produce this eccentric and unconventional family show, giving up hours of their own time and rehearsing since last September.

Filled with wildly funny moments, the play focuses on a bizarre, macabre, aristocratic family who dance on the graves or their ancestors in order to raise them from the dead, intertwined with the love story of Wednesday Addams and a normal boy called Lucas.

Drama Teacher Rebecca Pearce, who directed and produced the show, said: “This must be the strongest, most committed and most creative cast and crew I have ever worked with.

“Thanks go to the team of amazing teachers and support staff who supported the show and made it all possible. All the actors have certainly taken ownership of their very quirky parts and are also extremely talented singers and dancers – I feel proud of what they have achieved.”
