Last night we headed out as a family to review Kinetic School of Performing Arts Presents The Addams Family Musical. We love The Addams Family Musical, it’s such a fun and quirky show, so we were excited to see how Kinetic would tackle it!
Review: Kinetic School of Performing Arts Presents The Addams Family Musical
The Addams Family Musical follows Wednesday as she attempts to tell her parents about her impending engagement to seemingly ‘normal’ Lucas. With lots of musical numbers, comedy and a few adult jokes, The Addams Family has something for everyone…
The first thing that jumped out at me was the stage, set and costume. kinetic have really pulled it out of the bag for this production, and this effort certainly gave the show a very professional edge.
The choreography was awesome, with amazing dance scenes and clever use of props (look out for the umbrellas!). I loved how everyone moved around the scene and you could feel their positive energy as they performed. Big thumbs up to Kris Crowley for flawless choreography!
When it comes to performances, I have to say Tom Price stood out to me as crazy Uncle Fester. His performance was magnificent, and he gave his performance so much heart. As for his voice, well it’s unusual and beautiful all at once, and yes, I cried when he sang to the moon!
When it comes to the main characters, Morticia (Zoe Martin) and Gomez (Jack Davies), they offer such a fab take on the classic characters. We’ve seen Davies grow over the years, so this performance was a joy to watch. He’s really feeling his feet out there on the stage, and I love seeing him play another lead role. Martin grew on me from the beginning to the end of the show, and I thought she had a wonderful voice…
Wednesday Addams is performed by Georgia Tonge and she offered a strong and darkly humorous character alongside straight-laced Lucas (Taylor Morris). Morris had a fantastic voice and I loved their chemistry on stage. They were also very funny and I really enjoyed watching them perform Crazier Than You.
I also want to give a shout out to Scott Stokes interpretation of Lurch, who was absolutely fantastic throughout!
The whole performance was fun, exciting, funny and sometimes sad (yes, the moon…) and I’d urge you to grab a ticket!
If you went to see it, let me know your thoughts!
