Participants in the Kids’ Theater Workshop range in age from 8 to 18, and they learn all aspects of theater both on stage and behind the scenes. The kids participate in building and painting the set, gathering props, costuming, lighting and sound, as well as stage managing and producing shows. Many of the kids go on to college theater arts programs and local community theater shows.

 

The Addams Family Young@Part features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents. The whole Addams Family, based on the hit television series, gets involved, including all the ancestors.

 

The cast includes Peter Dudley as Gomez, Emma Molloy as Morticia, and Trinity Morse as Wednesday. Benjamin Marcotte will play Uncle Fester, with Christopher Tedcastle as Pugsley, Spencer Griffin as Lurch, Julianna Hodson as Grandma, and Benjamin Tedcastle as Cousin Itt. Abraham Marcotte will play the role of Lucas Beineke, Wednesday’s new love, and Cecily Schultz will play Alice Beineke, his mother, with Joe Molloy as Mal Beineke, his father. The Ancestors will include Isabella Cottrell, Damon Cottrell, Ashleigh Hodson, Faith Griffin, Carly Griffin, Annelissa Marcotte, Alivia Duffy, Kaylyn John-Zensky,  Biagio Donini, Riley Nagle, Anna Vyce, Abigail Hodgdon, Isabelle Holland, Kameron Johnston, Gina Boudreau, Izzy Cote, Michaela St. George, Addy Shonyo, Olivia Charles, Damonica Charles, Raylyn Pszonowsky, Chelsee Chagnon and Savannah Chagnon.

 

Director Maye Hart, who has worked with the kids in this workshop for over twenty years, and choreographer Dee Dee Pitcher have put together a great show that’s sure to have you singing along with the songs and tapping your toes to the music. Abby Cote will be stage manager, Cathy Williams is the umer and Chrissy Schultz is working on props. Jim Hart is heading up the kids’ set design and construction and designing the lighting.
