They’re creepy and they’re kooky: The Addams Family musical opens Osceola Arts 2019-20 theatre season

The Adams Family debuts at Osceola Arts on Friday.

Osceola Arts opens its theater doors for the 2019-20 Friday, Sept. 27 and running through Sunday, Oct. 13 with The Addams Family: A New Musical live on the Main Stage.

The original musical with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elise is fun for the family and a great way to get into the spirit of fall.

Based on the iconic creepy, quirky family of the same name, The Addams Family: A New Musical tells the story of one night in the Addams Family Mansion. When a family of outsiders comes to dinner, Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, and Fester must face the one thing that scares them the most: change.

Directed by Dominic Del Brocco, this musical comedy features a cast of talented men and women who are excited to bring this fun contemporary production to life.

Tickets start at only $25, with senior, students and group rates available. Show times for The Addams Family: A New Musical are at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. on Sundays, and an additional 2 p.m. matinee performance on Saturday, Oct. 12.

Osceola Arts is also offering two new visual arts exhibits. Celebrating Hispanic Arts and Culture, proudly showcases over 80 works by many local artists.

This exhibit will be on display through Nov. 3 in the Main Galleries. Additionally, the Studio Gallery plays host to Francisco Garcia Burgos, an exhibit that showcases paintings created by this Puerto Rican artist between 2001-19. It will also be on display through Nov. 3. An artist reception will be held for both exhibits on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 2 to 5 p.m. All exhibits and receptions are free and open to the public.
