America’s favorite freaky family is getting pulled in a new direction in this musical. Gomez and Morticia find themselves at odds when their daughter, Wednesday, meets Lucas and falls in love. The problem is he’s a “normal” boy from Ohio, and he and his perfectly “normal” parents have been invited over for dinner to meet the Addams Family.

Will the Addams Family be able to put aside their quirks, or will their differences destroy both families forever? How wrong could one “normal” night go?
