Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus in this musical: The Addams kids are growing up. The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, played by junior is now an eighteen year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. “It’s hard not to have fun when you’re directing these characters!” said Shelley Daniel, Darlington’s theatre director. “The humor is wicked and dark, but it has an awesome message that is buried down inside the comedy. At its core, ‘The Addams Family’ is about unconditional love, loyalty, and the beauty of authenticity. It celebrates family and relationships. It celebrates life and love, even in its darkest moments. For the Addams’, to deny any part of life’s messy journey is to deny the very gift of it. ”
