Annual chicken dinner Feb. 14: Hamilton drama to present “The Addams Family” musical

 Hamilton High School Drama Department presents the musical “The Addams Family” Feb. 12-15 in the Hamilton Fine Arts Center (HFAC). Shows begin at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and at 2 p.m. for the Sunday performance.

“The Addams Family” musical 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. 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.

General seating tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens. Tickets may be purchased 30 minutes before the show at the HFAC Box Office. For additional information, please call the Drama Department Box Office at (262) 246-6471 x1552.
