Crown Arts Collaborative presents the regional premier of the Addams Family Musical Crown Arts Collaborative (CAC), the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization responsible for the successful relaunch of theater and art at the Crown Uptown Theater , opens the 2nd theatrical production of their 2022 season with The Addams Family Musical. Performances run June 3-26 at Crown Uptown. Friday and Saturday shows at 8:00 p.m., Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m.
It will be the hit musical’s regional premiere, Kansas state’s first professional production, and the second regional premiere of the 2022 ACC season. The Addams Family Musical is a wacky, comedic feast for all ages. This new Broadway musical tells an original story with classic characters you already know and love. Wednesday, the Ultimate Princes of Darkness, grew up and fell in love with a gentle, intelligent young man from a respectable family, much to his mother’s dismay. Everything will change for both families on the fateful night when the Addams Family throws a dinner party for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
The Addams Family stars Daniel Gonzalez, Claire Gerig, Madi White, Kellen Clinton, Caleb Freeman, Vonda Schuster, Denver Fankhouser, John Keckeisen, Megan Parsley and Philip Hansen. The Ensemble is completed by Gavin Myers, Brandon Rose, Shay Brown, Christina Noble-Speedie, Jenni Warren and Khyah Van Es. Kyle Vespestad, of The Kyle & Monte Christmas Show and Golden Girls, is the show’s director and choreographer.
Addams Family tickets can be purchased with or without dinner. Adult tickets range from $40-45 for dinner and show; $25-30 for the show only. Student tickets are only $10 for the show only! Senior/Military discounts available. Tickets can be ordered at crownuptown.com or by calling the box office at 316-612-7696.
In partnership with Harvester Arts, an immersive art gallery by Tasha Wentling will be on display at the back of the theater. This gallery will amuse adults and children alike, allowing guests to touch and experience a spooky makeshift hotel lobby before the show begins. Photographs of Wentling will also be on display and available for purchase, in addition to mysterious hotel time capsules that could contain many fun surprises! This gallery continues CAC’s mission to collaborate with artists from all artistic mediums.
College Hill Deli will serve the show, offering three dining options for guests. Choice 2: grilled chicken, skewers and ravioli (vegetarian option). Dinners will also come with College Hill’s famous Fattoush salad.
For this production, CAC partnered with a local Wichita non-profit organization, as we do for every production. Our partner for the Addams Family will be Casa of Sedgwick County. 15% of ticket sales for all Sunday matinees will be donated to CASA to further its mission of “providing caring, trained volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in our community so that every child can reach their full potential.”
