Look who’s moved into the neighbourhood! Read more …

Everyone’s favourite kooky family are now on stage in this spectacular musical comedy. Wednesday Addams is all grown up and has a shocking secret: she’s fallen in love with a sweet young man from a respectable family. When the two families meet for dinner, will Gomez keep his daughter’s secret from his cherished Morticia, or will there be hilarious consequences?

Join them, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Pugsley and more for a heart-warming story of love, family and friendship…with a twist!

Featuring a live orchestra and extraordinary original score The Addams Family is sure to entertain whether you are 12 or 312!

The critical consensus

Matthew White's production is a knowing cartoon romp that gives full vent to Lippa's latin and tango heavy score.

****(*)Neil Cooper, Coffee-Table Notes, 26/04/2017

Hugely energetic, reliably tuneful and packed with more fun that could reasonably be expected, The Addams Family is always going to be a great success.

****(*)Hugh Simpson, All Edinburgh Theatre, 26/04/2017

This rejuvenated outing is surprisingly heart-warming, a balance of cynical yet cheesy and welcoming to audiences and freaks alike.

****(*)Dominic Corr, The Reviews Hub, 26/04/2017

Offering surprises in every scene, including monsters, moving pictures and Thing the helping hand, there is not a trick missed in this technical treat.

*****Katie Stephen, Edinburgh Guide, 26/04/2017

It’s an evening’s classy immersion into the uplifting fantasy world of America’s most endearing unweird family.

****(*)Sarah McIntosh, The Wee Review, 27/04/2017

This show does what it set out to: capture the quirky, off-beat uniqueness of Charles Addams' original creation, wrap it in catchy numbers and deliver it with style.

****(*)Kelly Apter, The List, 28/04/2017

The result is a truly witty and exhilarating show, full of satirical energy, hilarious one-liners, and superb musical numbers.

*****Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 29/04/2017

The book has been revised since its 2010 Broadway incarnation and the story remains slim, the characterisations broad, but the glorious decoration, some catchy tunes, the non-stop laughs and a master stroke of casting in every role, all add up to make an utterly irresistible night at the theatre.

*****Lauren Humphreys, The Reviews Hub, 11/10/2017

The Addams Family has arrived at the perfect time of year in Glasgow as everyone is getting into the Halloween spirit. However, the book, cast and music of The Addams Family are so strong that it would work just as beautifully year round. If you can get a ticket for the run then I urge you to do so!
