ADDAMS FAMILY OPENS IN ONE WEEK!

The cast of “Addams Family” horses around at Rehearsal.

They’re creepy and they’re kooky, and they’re coming to Alamogordo!

“The Addams Family,” the musical, based on the classic gag cartoons by Charles Addams, opens Friday November 2nd at the Flickinger Center. Performances continue November 3, 9, 10 at 7PM and November 4 at 2 PM.

And you’re not going to want to stay in your seats as this ghoulish family gets in touch with its macabre side.

“You’re going to see The Addams Family in a whole new light and how they deal with the “normal” world”, show director Jeremy Patton said.

Patton said the musical tells the story of Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, all grown up.

“She has a shocking secret that only her father knows — she’s fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family,” he said. “And Gomez must do something he’s never done before and keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia.”

When Wednesday asks her family to act like a “normal” family, the Addams family must discover what is normal, the director said. The results are hilarious and wackiness ensues.

The entire cast has worked tremendously hard on the show. Featured in the production are Fabiani Duarte as Gomez, Hillary Marshall as Morticia, Kyra Zartner as Wednesday, Sid Johnson as Fester and Zack Miller as Wednesday’s Boyfriend, Lucas Beineke. Choreography is by Kehau-Lani Kaihewalu and costumes by Geavonna Bryant. You will see the talents of many more Alamogrdo, Holloman and Cloudcroft faces as well!

Tickets are available online at the Flickinger or in person at their box office. In addition, Tickets are available at Books Revisited in the White Sands Mall or at the door the night of the show.

Remember, One week until opening night! We will see you there! Snap, snap!

SET BUILDING… IT TAKES THE WHOLE VILLAGE!

The Alamogordo Music Theatre has been gearing up for it’s fall production of “The Addams Family”, a musical version of the beloved classic characters that Charles Addams gave life to decades ago. There are several things that go into a making an extraordinary production; such as singing, blocking and rehearsing. However, set design and the set work that follows is key to a successful production.

Since the set is generally the first element of a production that the audience sees, its job is to convey the information needed to launch the story. An effective scenic design (partnered with a great lighting design) helps the audience see and hear the play better by telling them where to look and whom to listen to. The means to a great set design should allow the audience’s focus to be the actor in space.

Being a non profit community theater, AMT relies mostly on its actors, crew and community members to assemble its sets. Every Saturday morning members of the show go out and build platforms, flats, windows and doorways to create the desired illusion for AMT’s performances. It’s a wonderful way to socialize and get to know your fellow cast and crew.  The tremendous benefit comes from the brilliant people from Alamogordo, Holloman AFB, Tularosa and Cloudcroft coming together and sharing knowledge and experiences. It is what has made Alamogordo Music Theatre a truly wonderful organization over the last 61 years.

If you would like to get involved in set or stage work with AMT, drop us a line here on our website!

“The Addams Family” will open on November 2nd at the Flickinger Center.
