The Janus Players Present The Addams Family on Feb. 9-10th
The Hun School’s Janus Players will get mysterious and spooky when they present the musical The Addams Family on Feb. 9th at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 10th at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in John A. Saks ’31 Auditorium.
A 2010 Broadway musical, the play is a take on the 1960s TV show about a ghoulish and macabre family unaware that there is anything unusual about them. The musical shows what ensues when the Addams’ daughter, Wednesday, falls in love with a “normal” boy and must introduce her family to his.
“We selected the show based on input from the students, musical director Ryan Brown, and choreographer and dance teacher Lisa Yacomelli,” said Hun Theatre Director Bill Esher. "Our goal is to pay homage to the Addams Family that we all know from the popular TV series. The students are embracing the style of that show, and we hope that audiences will leave feeling that they have visited some old friends."
The cast for the show includes: Tejus Govani ’18 as Gomez Addams; Sophie Tarditi ’20 as Morticia Addams; Devon Pasieka ’21 as Wednesday Addams; Aimee Millington ’21 as Pugsley Addams; Ben Wild ’18 as Uncle Fester; Sarah Willenbucher ’19 as Grandma; Martin Caforio ’18 as Lucas Beineke; Ava Petrecca ’18 as Alice Beineke; Anish Kokkirala ’18 as Mel Beineke; and Christian Schulte ’18 as Lurch.
The Ancestors are played by: Kathryn Barbour ’18 (dance captain); Gabriella Cattani ’21; Karen Douyon ’18 ; Courtney Joseph ’21; Nina Kapstein ’20 ; Lucy Law ’20 ; Skye LeBeau-Maltese ’19 ; Jude Leming ’24 ; Melia Rao ’18 ; Ryan Rosenthal ’21; Madison Schulte ’18 ; Grey Simon ’20 ; and Karen Zhang ’19.
