Preview: The Addams Family

Community Players Get Creepy and Kooky with [Snap, Snap] The Addams Family Join Community Players as Robinhood Lane welcomes its newest residents: the peculiar, macabre, and, yes, hilarious title characters of The Addams Family.  Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Cousin Itt, and the rest of the gang are the offspring of the, um, unusual imagination of Charles Addams, longtime cartoonist for the New Yorker. The characters first appeared in a cartoon in 1937 and thereafter found an unlikely home in the pages of the nation’s most sophisticated magazine until Addams’s death in 1988.  The Addamses are a loving family, in many ways a typical American family, except their values are reversed from those of their neighbors. In Addams’s cartoons we see them on their mansion’s roof preparing to pour boiling oil on Christmas carolers or we see Wednesday and Pugsley playing with dolls—and a tiny guillotine!
