When asked about this highly entertaining show, director Monroe Moore said, “I am thrilled about this production of ‘The Addams Family’ and the cast we have assembled. We chose to double cast the part of Pugsley Addams to give two extremely talented young men the opportunity to perform the role. This show is incredibly funny and really speaks to the meaning of family. I think all families will enjoy this show and enjoy these iconic characters coming alive on the SAAC stage.”
