Students' creepy night at the theatre

Dawn Gibson

IT was indeed a creepy night as theatre arts students from International School Suva took to the stage on Thursday to perform their take on the one and only The Addams Family, rehashed and called The Creepy Addams.

The students, from a number of different year levels, acted out their very lively, witty and of course dark performance to about 550 people in their school hall in Laucala Beach Estate.

Given the idea of the annual performance is to try and make the play somewhat different to the original motion picture, the play directors decided on making the Addams family bankrupt after lead male character Gomez Addams invests all the family fortunes in a dodgy Nigerian bank without consulting his family.

Following this, family members; Morticia Addams, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Thing and Grandmama, all have to get jobs to try and save their mansion from being taken away. Separately, children Pugsley and Wednesday are forced to attend something they hate with a passion — school.

Wrapped in unexpected twists and turns, the play ends well, with unlikely saviour Lurch winning a talent contest to get the family enough money to keep the family mansion.

School principal Anna Marsden said the play was a great achievement for the school, the students and the teachers involved in putting it together.

Some of the previous productions include students' take on The Pirates of the Caribbean, Aladdin and The Lion King.
