Careers in the Performing Arts: The Addams Family

1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

The Addams Family is a musical comedy with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. The show is based upon The Addams Family characters created by Charles Addams in his single-panel gag cartoons, which depict a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre. Numerous film and television adaptations of Addams' cartoons exist, but the musical, which is the first stage show based on the characters, is based upon the cartoons rather than the television and film characters.

Through a panel (cast and crew) interview and Q&A session, students gain an understanding of the skills and competencies related to specific career fields in the performing arts directly from Broadway professionals.

Careers in the Performing Arts enriches your students’ classroom experience and is a joint educational initiative of PlayhouseSquare and WVIZ/PBS and 90.3 WCPN ideastream.
Teachers benefit from bringing professionals right into the classroom through the technology of distance learning! Our Teacher’s Guide connects the experience to the classroom curriculum.
