Introducing Our Spring Play Series

 

El Dorado High School Students are going to bring humor and life to one of America’s favorite fictional households  – The Addams Family.

Cartoonist Charles Addams began to feature the family in The New Yorker back in 1938.  In 1964, ABC TV shot a black and white television series and brought the characters to life as a passionate, proud, and close-knit family who had no idea how truly bizarre they all were.  In the 1970’s the characters made their way into various animated series on CBS, ABC, and NBC.  In 1991, the popular movie starring Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christopher Lloyd, and Christina Ricci debuted and made this family iconic worldwide.  This family has had its influences in popular culture, comics, TV, cinema, Broadway, and fashion.  In 2010, a musical adaptation was on Broadway featuring names like Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth.

Our students plan to dazzle and excite you with two types of performances this spring.  Come watch us transform the characters and showcase our many talents of acting, singing, and dancing.
