FSPA Musical Theater Students to Present The Addams Family
The Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) will present The Addams Family, featuring an all-student teen cast on February 10 and 11 at 7:30 p.m. at THE BLACK BOX.
The Addams Family is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, 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 wasn’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.
FSPA’s youth musical theater students will present a musical revue entitled “Family Reunion” on February 11 at 2 and 4 p.m. at THE BLACK BOX.
With extensive programs in music, dance, and drama all housed under one roof, FSPA is uniquely positioned to offer an immersive interdisciplinary musical theater experience. Younger students explore the exciting world of musical theater with an introduction to basic skills in singing, acting, and dancing, while older and more advanced students build upon this foundation with increasingly challenging repertoire, technique, and scene work. Musical theater history and audition technique round out the department’s hands-on, multi-disciplinary opportunities. Alumni of FSPA’s Musical Theater program have gone on to perform on Broadway, in national tours, regional theater, TV/Film, cruise ships, and other venues around the world.
Enrollment at FSPA is ongoing; prospective students are invited to stop by 38 Main Street for a tour, complimentary trial class, and more information. For tickets to The Addams Family and more information on FSPA’s offerings, visit www.FSPAonline.com or call (508) 528-8668.
