PHS Spectacle Theatre presents
The Addams Family Quarantined: A Dramatic Concert Version
Book by MARSHALL BRICKMAN and RICK ELICE
Music and Lyrics by ANDREW LIPPA
Based on Characters Created by Charles Addams

The creators of The Addams Family Quarantined Concert Version adapted the original Broadway musical to be performed during the pandemic of 2020-21. The story is centered around Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness. All grown up, she has fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. Everything changes for the Addams clan on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

The Addams Family Quarantined Concert Version features actors from all grades at PHS, members of the PHS Tech Crew, and the PHS Orchestra.  

The show will air on Booktix Live on April 22, 23, and 24, 2021, at 7:30 PM. Tickets are available as Virtual Stream Passes. Streaming Passes are $5.00 and can be reserved at https://phsnj.booktix.com/

 

 

About the PHS Drama Program

Whether a student dreams of starring in a show, leading the technical team, or helping manage a theatrical production, the PHS Drama department has a long legacy of introducing students to theatre in a way that builds confidence on and off stage. From Drama I classes to the Advanced Acting and Performance Seminar, students explore all aspects of theatre through hands-on experiences. 

PHS students perform Love's Labour Lost

Drama classes are offered during the day so that students are able to participate in theatre productions while also being a member of an athletic team or other after-school organization. Courses offer students a creative outlet while also introducing them to the principles and techniques of playwriting, including plot structure, dramatic action, point of view, mood, character development, setting, written dialogue, and stage directions. In addition to acting courses, PHS also offers a course on Musical Theatre that explores song and dance and provides students with practical steps to pursuing a career. 

Our theatre facilities include the 700+ seat Trego-Biancosino Auditorium and a black box theatre. A full student orchestra accompanies the annual spring musical.
