Not only does the Musical Theatre Troupe concentrate on putting together one large show a year, our troupe also produces a variety of musical theatre numbers from a wide selection of shows, with a wide variety of options for performances including competitions and special events as well as the annual Stage & the City Charity Showcase and its own dedicated Musial Theatre Troupe Show. Our troupe members are put through their paces each week they are with us, receiving training from industry professionals, learning complex harmonies and how to harmonise as a group, west end style choreography and techniques, and how to perform as an ensemble.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY MUSICAL (Book by MARSHALL BRICKMAN and RICK ELICE Music and Lyrics by ANDREW LIPPA Based on Characters Created by Charles Addams), a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, 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. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, 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.
Come along to our open auditions and try out for one of the main roles (Gomez, Wednesday, Morticia, Pugsley etc), or even the ghoulish ANCESTOR ENSEMBLE!
