In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. However, their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday is now an eighteen-year-old young woman who has fallen in love with a sweet, smart boy from a “normal” family, and to make matters worse, she has invited his parents to the Addams’ home for dinner.
The result is a comical feast set to music! In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change.
