Community, What's On
Talented local folks Paddy McGennity, Anna-Maria Boyle and Jim McGuigan all have starring roles in Banbridge Musical Society’s upcoming production of ‘The Addams Family’. addams1The Addams Family, originally created by the cartoonist Charles Addams, was first performed on Broadway in 2010. The society in Banbridge, with members from various towns in the surrounding area, were delighted to obtain the rights to perform this musical comedy, as the rights to perform are not freely available. This exciting show features the quirky and ghoulish family you may be familiar with from the television series or films such as ‘The Addams Family’ and ‘Addams Family Values’. The musical, directed by Leonard Anderson, is set in the Addams’ spooky mansion in Central Park in New York. Paddy McGennity is excellent in the lead role of Gomez Addams, married to Morticia Addams. The plot centres around their daughter, Wednesday Addams (played by Anna-Maria Boyle) who has fallen in love with a young man named Lucas Beineke (Scott Skelton) from a somewhat respectable, ‘normal’ family. The hilarious comedy follows what ensues as the ‘normal’ Beineke and ghoulish Addams families get better acquainted. Jim McGuigan is excellent as Addams Family favourite Fester Addams – guaranteed to be a favourite with the audience. Anna-Maria displays her exceptional vocal talents and all three are superb actors. Speaking to Newry Times, Director Leonard Anderson said, “I am delighted with the way rehearsals have gone to date. We hope the audience’s will enjoy this kooky version of the Addams Family as much as the cast have enjoyed rehearsing it.” Article continues below:April 2016With music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, the show has an excellent score, displaying wonderful harmonies, expertly directed by musical director Colin Loughead. Leonard continued, “The set design and construction are well under way and no doubt this will be a fantastic production that the local community can be proud of.” The cast are making the finishing touches in rehearsals before their opening night on 19th April. The show will run from 19th – 23rd April at 7.30pm at the IMC Cinema in Banbridge (formerly Iveagh Movie Studios). Tickets are priced £10 on the Tuesday evening and £12.50 Wednesday to Saturday evenings. You can purchase tickets now from IMC cinemas by calling 028 4066 2666 or by visiting www.imccinemas.ie
