There’s an Addams Family musical comedy coming to Cork next month

This is just what we needed to hear in January.

Following the success of one of Netflix’s most popular new releases, The Addams Family musical production will be taking to the big stage in Cork city this February.

Taking place over five nights at the stunning Everyman Theatre on MacCurtain Street, and presented by MTU Cork School of Music, The Addams Family will be the first full-scale musical production from the MTU students, and it promises to be an unforgettable evening.

This musical comedy version is from the award-winning writers of the hit Jersey Boys, with music and lyrics by Tony award-nominated Andrew Lippa and features a talented cast from years 3 & 4 of the BA (Hons) in Musical Theatre, as well as a live band drawn from students of the BA in Popular Music and BMus.

“The next generation of professional performers from all over Ireland, with a top-notch professional creative team, and a signature dynamic orchestra, guarantee a spine-tingling night of musical pleasure!”
