GASD gets spooky with The Addams Family: The Musical

Tell your friends

Students from the Gettysburg Area High School will present “The Addams Family: The Musical” this weekend.

The show chronicles the drama, travails, and romances of the charming but offbeat American family originally created by American cartoonist Charles Addams, which was later developed into a 1960s TV show as well as film, video games, comic books, a musical and merchandising.

As they say about the Addams Family:

“They’re creepy and they’re kooky
Mysterious and spooky
They’re all together ooky”

The show has been “on deck” for a few years now at GASD, ever since orchestral director Krista Kriel said she wanted to do it. 

The show is director Greg Trax’s 9th production with GAHS. Joining him and Kriel in producing this musical are Kate Sainer, Choreographer, Terry McCDannell, Tech Director, and – new this year – Megan Coolbaugh, Music Director.

Shows are Friday and Saturday, March 4 & 5 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 General Admission, $5 Students – tickets are sold 30 min before the show in the High School Auditorium lobby.

Come out to the haunted mansion and show these talented children and school district staff that you support their hard work and dedication.
