This fall, Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre is proud to present a production that is creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky and altogether ooky: The Addams Family. This Tony Award nominated macabre musical comedy is now haunting the stage at Beef & Boards.

Few things frighten the eerie Addams clan. But Gomez Addams faces a nightmare when his daughter, Wednesday, falls in love. What’s worse, she loves a boy Gomez has never met – who is from a respectable family. To complicate matters even more, Wednesday pleads with him not to tell her mother, Morticia, and Gomez must do something he’s never dared – keep a secret from his wife.

Everything changes forever for the famously frightening family when they are put to the test hosting a dinner for the “normal” boyfriend Lucas and his parents.

Based on the cartoon characters created by Charles Addams that later inspired a television series in the 1960s and several films, The Addams Family opened on Broadway in 2010. The Beef & Boards production stars Eddie Curry as Gomez Addams and Erin Cohenour as Morticia. Samantha Russell makes her Beef & Boards debut in the role of Wednesday Addams. Jeff Stockberger plays Lurch and Shaun Rice will reprise the role of Uncle Fester, which he played in The Addams Family National Tour. Blake Spellacy plays the boyfriend Lucas, with John Vessels and Sarah Hund as Mal and Alice Beineke, his parents.

The Addams Family is on stage for 51 performances through Nov. 22 in the intimate space of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets range from $40 to $65 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, prepared in-house for each performance, and select beverages. Parking is always free.

For reservations, call the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre Box Office at 317.872.9664 anytime between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays. Discounts are available to groups of 20 or more; contact the Group Sales Department for more details.
