The production includes students from 7 schools and features LaSalle junior Jack Curnutte as Gomez, Taylor High School senior Hallie Menkhaus as Morticia, and LaSalle senior Bryan Barry as Lurch. The Addams children are played by LaSalle freshman Ben Reeder as Pugsley, and McAuley senior Sarah Lawson as Wednesday. Uncle Fester, played by LaSalle sophomore Andrew Martini, and Grandma, played by Mother of Mercy senior Meghan Mays round out the family.
In this musical comedy, Wednesday has fallen in love with the seemingly "normal" Lucas Beinike, played by LaSalle junior Owen Wittich. As might be predicted, his parents, Malcolm and Alice Beinike, played by LaSalle junior Joe Kroger and McAuley junior Gabrielle Mouch, are not amused.
Aided by Fester and the Ancestors of Addams Families past, played by students from LaSalle, McAuley, Mother of Mercy, Mount Notre Dame, Loveland and Oak Hills, the young couple try to persuade their parents to accept their romance.
