The Addams Family

Book by: Marshall Brickman and Rick Elic
Music and Lyrics by: Andrew Lippa

Bishop Blanchet High School is excited to welcome you to the historic Moore Theatre as we recount in song and dance the escapades and wisdom of The Addams Family! In this story, Wednesday is growing up, but Gomez and Morticia aren’t quite ready to see their daughter pulled in a new, brighter direction. Unbeknownst to her parents, Wednesday has fallen in love with a “normal” boy, and when she invites her beau, Lucas Beineke, and his parents over for dinner, the Addams family must grapple with being good hosts without compromising their own macabre family values. Fasten your seatbelts for a fun-filled and captivating evening with Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, as well as all the ancestors that will leave the family (and us!) charmed and changed forever.  
 
As part of our mission of service, Bishop Blanchet High School has opted to partner with Operation Nightwatch for our telling of the Addams family. For over 50 years, Operation Nightwatch, a grass-roots, volunteer-led group of people, has dedicated themselves to loving and serving neighbors who are poor and homeless. Through the years, as the downtown Seattle community has changed, Operation Nightwatch has also shifted their focus to meet emerging needs.  You can find out more about their mission and services by clicking this link.
 
BBHS will be collecting donations on each night of the performances for all who would like to support the good work of Operation Nightwatch. We are also encouraging and asking all ticket holders to consider bringing an in-kind gift that would support their ministry to our poor and homeless neighbors.  Operation Nightwatch suggested in-kind donations.  
 
Tickets go on sale, March 27, 2020.

About Our Program

At Bishop Blanchet, our drama department's motto is "Truth and Courage." Whether students intend to pursue a career in theatre or are simply looking to try something new, we believe that making theatre cultivates creativity, sensitivity and enthusiasm in young people, and our program offers a supportive environment where students can make bold choices. 
 
The drama department offers a comprehensive three-part sequential acting program, three classes in theatre design, and a three-show season: a fall play, a student directed one-act festival, and a spring musical.
 
Students can participate in the performances both on stage acting and behind the scenes with one of our five crews: Stage Crew, Costume Crew, Hair and Makeup Crew, Marketing Crew, and Stage Management.
 
For more information about drama clubs like the Improv Team or the International Thespian Society, visit the Clubs page.
