The Addams Family (Royal Conservatoire Of Scotland)

By | Published on Thursday 7 August 2014

Complete with a doom and gloom atmosphere, signature finger snaps, and even contemporary references, ‘The Addams Family’ is that classic family musical that never dies. With a fantastically spooky set and ‘dead on’ sound design and lighting, the show vastly resembles the television and cinematic representations. The only exceptions are a female Lurch and the presence of numerous ghostly relatives from a variety of decades past. The show is performed by students of the MA Musical Theatre Program at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and was an exceptionally professional production overall. Stand-out performances came from Andrew Perry as Uncle Fester; Martin Murphy as Gomez Addams and Hannah Howie as Alice Beineke. This is one for the whole family, folks- even Thing.

The Assembly Hall, until 25 Aug.
