On March 30, the EHS Theater Department’s musical made its debut in the school’s auditorium. The department put on The Addams Family, a modernized version of the 1960s TV show of the same name. The frequently reimagined fantastical tale follows the lives of the humorously morbid family, consisting of parents Gomez and Morticia, children Wednesday and Pugsley, relatives Uncle Fester and Grandma, as well as their butler, Lurch. In the musical, published in 2009, Wednesday and her fiancée — Lucas Beineke — endure a dinner with both families, while keeping the engagement a secret from both families. Meanwhile, Gomez, entrusted with the secret, wrestles with a dilemma — should he keep the secret from his wife, or risk losing his daughter’s trust?
