Hononegah Community High School Presents The Addams Family! Mark your calendars for this year’s all-school musical, “The Addams Family!" Hononegah’s fantastic students of the cast, crew, and live pit will be featured in this comical feast. Performances will be March 15 and 16 at 7:00pm and March 17 at 2:00pm. American Sign Language interpretation will be provided at the March 17th performance. "The Addams Family" features an original story based on the eccentric characters that embraces the wackiness in every family. When the ultimate princess of darkness Wednesday Addams has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man, her parents Gomez and Morticia are forced to host a dinner party for Wednesday's boyfriend and his respectable parents. If that wasn't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father Gomez, begging him to 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 dinner for their "normal" guests. Tickets are available for purchase online at beginning February 26th. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students. All tickets are assigned seating. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door one hour before each performance (cash only). The Box Office will be open from 4:15-6:15pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays in March leading up to the performances. A small processing fee will be added to ticket purchases made with a credit card.  Read More about Hononegah Community High School Presents The Addams Family Press Release!
