Your chance to win tickets to see The Addams Family at Bristol Hippodrome

By Chew Valley Gazette in Arts

The musical comedy The Addams Family will be coming to Bristol Hippodrome from 19th to 23rd September and the Gazette is delighted to be able to offer four tickets for the evening performances on Tuesday 19th September at 7:30pm.

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and has a shocking secret that only Gomez knows; she’s fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family! Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. All the usual clan are present - Uncle Fester, Lurch, Pugsley et al.

Samantha Womack, Les Dennis and Carrie Hope Fletcher will star as Morticia, Fester and Wednesday Addams in the UK & Irish premiere of THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a musical comedy, with book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, based on the characters created by Charles Addams. Further casting is to be announced.

Samantha Womack will take on the role of Morticia Addams fresh from leaving BBC1’sEastEnders after nearly a decade as Ronnie Mitchell. Samantha has also played Tanya Dawson for three series of the hit comedy Mount Pleasant (Sky1) and, on film she will be reprising her role next summer as Michelle Unwin in Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Les Dennis spent the last three years playing burglar-turned-Romeo, Michael Rodwell, in ITV’sCoronation Street. Immediately prior to starring in THE ADDAMS FAMILY, he will appear at the Menier Chocolate Factory in the musical She Loves Me. Les’s other stage credits include the musicals Me & My Girl, Chicago, Monty Python’s Spamalot and Hairspray. He took a hit one-man play Jigsy, to the Edinburgh Fringe and, in 2016, produced and starred in the sell-out 40thanniversary production of Alan Bleasdale’s Down the Dock Road at the Royal Court Liverpool.
