Theatre Arts Productions (TAP), a nonprofit theater company, is preparing for another musical. This time, they are trying something different, partnering with the Village of Wellington and presenting three performances of The Addams Family at the Wellington Amphitheater.
The Addams Family, directed by Jaycie Cohen, is a ghoulish musical romp through the life of an eccentric, wealthy, aristocratic, macabre, fun-loving family. The complete opposite of the 20th century model family, they remain unfazed that people find them bizarre and somewhat frightening. Watch the histrionics as Wednesday brings her “normal” boyfriend’s family home for dinner.
There will be two shows on Saturday, May 21 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m., and a single performance on Sunday, May 22 at 11 a.m. Tickets are on sale now online through Eventbrite, through www.tapstars.org or at the show.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the show. Student tickets are $10, and children under 5 are admitted free.
Cast members from the western communities include Sydney Bator, Brie Farrell, Macie Dietz, Rebbeca Kane, Grace Cavin, Stella Tagleiri, Alana Bernstein, Julianna Farrell, Carianne Tummino, Kyli Mitten, Seth Suchy, Alana Bernstein and Jade Keskinen. Musical Director Scott Houchins also resides in the western communities.
Other cast members include Daryan Lyew-Ayer (Lake Worth), Ash Herrmann (Boca Raton), London Karvaski (Lake Worth), Dean Cane (Boca Raton), Carl VanDyke (Boynton Beach) and Anthony Osorio (Lake Worth). Choreographer Jesse Hoffman resides in Boca Raton.
This is TAP’s fifth musical theater presentation. The nonprofit also produces an annual night of short plays called TAPShorts featuring local playwrights, actors and directors. Information on TAPShorts is available at www.tapstars.org.
The group’s next production is Matilda, and auditions will begin after The Addams Family concludes.
