RANGELEY — “The Addams Family,” a Community Theater Production of the Rangeley Friends of the Arts, will be staged at 7 p.m. Friday through Sunday, Aug. 11-14, at the RFA Lakeside Theater. The production is ponsored in part by the Birds of a Feather Gallery.

The show is based upon The Addams Family characters created by Charles Addams in his single-panel gag cartoons, which depict a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre.

“The Addams Family” features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family — a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must 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 a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.

Tickets cost $15 and are available online at www.rangeleyarts.org, or at the Theater Box Office 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday through Thursday at 2493 Main S. The Box Office will also be open 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on show days. There will be a limited number of tickets available at the door.
