The Addams Family is headed to the Heartland

This Addams Family is coming to the Sondheim Center at the Fairfield Arts and Convention Center.

Event organizers say it's an Addams Family portrait you've never seen before. The production is a smash-hit musical comedy that brings the darkly delirious world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and Lurch to life.

The Addams 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 weren't upsetting enough, she 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.

â??Well it's a weird and wonderful, delightful performance that comes to the stage,â?? Rustin Lippincott, FACC Executive Director said. â??It's an Addam's Family portrait like you've never seen. If you've seen the TV shows or if you've seen the movie, it's something that you've never seen. Come meet the family. We'll leave the lights off for you.â??

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Ticket prices range from $15-$39.
