EDINBORO, PA (October 12, 2018) – Get a witch’s shawl on and a broomstick you can crawl on – tickets for General McLane High School’s The Addams Family go on sale this Halloween.
The Addams Family, which has been selected as this year’s high school musical, will be staged at General McLane High School from November 15-18, 2018.
“This show is absolutely hilarious and the cast is doing a great job. They are very funny,” said General McLane High School musical director Bruce Yates. “The sets and costuming for the show are unreal. If you are a fan of The Addams Family cartoons, TV show or movie or if you like to laugh and be entertained, then this is the perfect show for you.”
The cast includes Ryan Hess (Gomez), Cassidy Comer (Morticia), Kellen Smith (Uncle Fester), Madi Wager (Wednesday), Carter Willis (Pugsley), Jayda Plonski (Grandma), Derek Rafeew (Lurch), Logan Miller (Mal), Taylor Thomas (Alice) and Samuel Petkac (Lucas).
According to Yates, the cast is exceptional. Auditions for this year’s musical had the most students in the history of auditioning for a show at General McLane.
Tickets are $8 for students, $10 for general admissions and $15 for a limited number of “RIP Seating”, which are the first 8 rows of the center section (about 120 seats per night).
