WILLOWTREE Theatre Company has been selected as one of the first companies in the South-West to perform the musical version of The Addams Family.

The show, at the New Hall from December 2-9, has yet to be performed in the UK and is available to only a few amateur companies across the country before it is launched on the West End stage.

Willowtree Committee chairman Abi Pring said: “The Addams Family has characters that everyone knows, and great plot and some terrific songs by Andrew Lippa.

“It has been a huge hit in the USA and we can’t wait to start rehearsing.”
