The Addams Family

On March 15, 2018 The Wabeno High School Drama Department preformed the popular new musical, The Addams Family. It was performed for the Wabeno High School and Laona High School student body. The cast of the show was very happy to perform for them. It follows the Addams family based upon the original TV show and some other characters.

The story line follows Wednesday as she falls in love with Lucas, someone who is not anything like the Addam’s family. Wednesday brings Lucas and his parents home to meet her parents. Throughout the play each character learns a little something about themselves and also learns to accept new people into their lives. And of course, there is plenty of humor to around during all of this. All the actors clearly put their hear and soul into their characters which made the show very entertaining.
