The musical here at Cumberland Valley is quite impressive and this year is no different. This year’s production of The Addams Family may be the best show we have ever done.

The story chronicles Wednesday, the mischevious daughter of Gomez and Morticia Addams, who falls in love with a “normal” boy Lucas. The story escalates when the Lucas’ family come for dinner and they play a game disclosing truth with the wacky Addams Family.

This year, the directors cast a seventh grade boy from Good Hope Middle School, Nick Perry, to play Pugsley Addams, the brother of Wednesday Addams.

“It has been an amazing experience to be in this show. It gave me an opportunity to make new friends,” Perry said.

The kids have worked so hard on this show practicing after school almost every day with the directors on stage. They also practice the dances before school and in their free periods during the day.

Hannah DuBois is a senior at CV and is a member of the dance core. This year, she is a saloon girl ancestor.

“Tango De Amor is the hardest dance of the show, but we have so much fun at rehearsals. That makes performing it very fun,” Dubois said.

Veronica Goonan is a freshman and is a portrait ancestor in this year’s show.

“The time and effort everyone has put into the show is crazy, and all this work has paid off to make The Addams Family truly amazing,” Goonan said.

Not only are the actors and actresses dedicated, the stage crew and pit members have dedicated a lot of time to the meticulous set pieces and beautiful music.

Now, the actors and actresses will have a week of tech rehearsals and then a week of shows. During tech rehearsals, the students and directors work collaboratively to make sure every last detail of the show is as good as it can be. It is an exhausting week but it guarantees musical success.

Eliza Keller is a junior and is in the dance core, playing a native american ancestor.

“The dancing and singing will keep the audience entertained. I like the tango dance because it is very difficult, so I think the audience will like it.” Keller said.

Another freshman portrait ancestor, Calleigh Ryan, concurred.

“People should come support a wonderful music program with incredibly talented young actors and actresses,” Ryan said.
