IT’S a bit spooky and maybe even a little cooky, but sure to entertain, with Claremont College’s 2021 musical being announced as the Broadway show, ‘The Addams Family’.

A musical comedy, the show is based upon The Addams Family characters created by Charles Addams.

In a new storyline, this very quirky family is turned upside down when their daughter Wednesday Addams falls in love with a boy from a very respectable family.

Coming to life in June, more than forty students will be involved, either performing on stage, playing in the band or as part of the backstage crew.

Joining them will be some of their fellow year 10 students from schools in the Derwent collective.

Rehearsing since February, the students are looking forward to presenting a show after COVID-19 restrictions prevented many 2020 theatre productions from taking place.

The musical is always a college community event.

The set is being built by the Claremont College VET Construction classes who are applying their learning to a real-life project.

Also contributing will be students in VET Retail Cosmetics classes who will design and create the actors’ makeup.

The characters’ iconic hair will be styled by the VET Hairdressing students.

Directing The Addams Family is experienced teacher and director Bill Powell.

The band is under the baton of music teacher and professional musician Greg Souter, with vocal director Brett Budgeon being an incredibly talented vocal teacher that has performed in many professional shows.

Choreographer Angela Barnard is an Errol award winner and college dance teacher who works on several shows each year.

Tickets for performances at the Montrose Bay High School Theatre will be available from Trybooking.com from early May.
