Edison, NJ - The Stephen J. Capestro Theater will be presenting “The Addams Family” from July 31, 2019 through August 10, 2019. All summer performances begin at 8p.m.  There are no performances on Sunday.

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.

“Plays-in-the-Park is a Middlesex County summer tradition. Performing in a production is a rite of passage for many theater students in the area, and families gather on warm summer nights to watch top notch performances of popular plays and musicals," stated organizers.
