Calendar Pick: The Addams Family

The Addams Family

Just in time for Halloween, the Oconee Youth Playhouse presents a special production of The Addams Family, a musical comedy based on the cartoon characters created by Charles Addams. The play, adapted from the off-Broadway production, features all the Addams Family characters you know, as well as some new ones. The cast is drawn from 12 local area schools, and mainly consists of high school and middle school students. The Oconee Youth Playhouse was founded in 1998 by Terra and Shane Hannon as an effort to engage youth in the arts. They have gone on to direct more than 60 plays with Oconee Youth Playhouse. The Addams Family will be the sixth play at their new theater, a recent addition to the playhouse. Tickets can be purchased online at
