Gonna pay a call on The Addams Family?

By Riverine Herald

FROM the moment the house lights dim, it’s clear Echuca-Moama Theatre Company’s production of The Addams Family is laser focussed on nostalgia and fun.

This is the story based on Charles Addams’ original single panel newspaper comics of Wednesday Addams bringing her boyfriend and his ‘normal’ family home for dinner.

But make no mistake this show is by no means one dimensional and with some big local voices headlining the production it is jam-packed with show-stopping numbers set perfectly against the choreography of Colleen DeWinne and Kaitlyn Bulmer.

Director Luke Westley has styled The Addams Family perfectly, and in his directorial debut he seems like an old hand, with a crystal clear vision connecting the nostalgia of the Addams — who we all know and love — seamlessly to today’s world.

The Addams Family has big laughs, toe tapping songs and true heart.
