Northcliff High School in Johannesburg will bring its new musical to Durban after its record-breaking, bumper success in Johannesburg.

Possibly the best offering yet from this ground breaking school, The Addams Family 2016 will be the 18th production to tour to the Playhouse in as many years.

With book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and based on the characters created by Charles Addams, the musical is directed and produced by Nick Jourdan who has been responsible for the many successful Northcliff productions that have toured to Durban.

Wednesday Addams has grown up and found love. Her new beau and the prospective in-laws are invited to dinner to meet the disparate Addams clan with hilarious results.

“The cast is notably made up of surprisingly young pupils who acquit themselves with maturity and professionalism. Their suitability to their roles is uncanny and their portrayal of this outlandish and bizarre family makes for hilarious entertainment,” says Jourdan.

The Addams Family 2016 will run at the Playhouse Drama from June 28 to July 3 and booking is at Computicket.
