Opposites Attract

First off, Happy Valentine’s Day from This Is the Lakes Area! I have to be honest, I hesitated today in regard to posting about the upcoming Greater Lakes Area Performing Arts (GLAPA) production of The Addams Family. I thought it seemed a little “dark” for Valentine’s Day, but I changed my mind after reading the plot; there is a love story after all.

Synopsis taken from the GLAPA website:
“America’s darkest family comes to life in this delightful, family-friendly musical about love, family, honesty, and growing up. The Addams Family features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family–and she begs her father not to tell her mother. 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.”
