The Addams Family is a musical comedy with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. 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. Numerous film and television adaptations of Addams' cartoons exist, but the musical, which is the first stage show based on the characters, is based upon the cartoons rather than the television and film characters.
"Addams Family Musical" Rehearsals

"Over the past five years I have worked to develop the Seton Drama Program, which currently boasts two major theatrical productions per year, an annual alumni dinner theater production, Shakespeare and performance workshops, and participation in the ESU National Shakespeare Competition. I am deeply grateful to the many students, alumni, parents, administrators, faculty and staff who have helped and supported this ongoing process."
