Galion high school performing arts to present The Addams Family

Staff report

The Galion High School Performing Arts department will present its performance of “The Addams Family,” Musical on April 1, 2 and 3. All performances will take place at the uptown Galion Community Theater.

The show revolves around the famed Addams Family and the daughter, Wednesday, who has fallen in love with a normal boy. The Addams invite the boy’s family over for dinner and a meet and greet, and trouble soon follows.

“This is a delightful fun show full of comedy and a bit of brotherly torture, all in good fun of course,” GHS teacher and director Cheri Laughbaum said. “All shows at Galion High School are run by students. Actors, lighting, sound, backstage, and the assistant directors are all current high school students, and they all have worked hard to prepare for this performance.”

Show times are at 7 p.m. on April 1 and 2, and 2 p.m. on April 3. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. April 1 and 2, and reopen at 1:15 p.m. for the show April 3.

“I am excited to see this spring’s musical and am incredibly proud of Mrs. Laughbaum and the high school students involved in this production,” Superintendent Jim Grubbs said. “The Performing Arts Department does an outstanding job preparing our students for their performances, and I know this spring’s show will be another quality event.”

Tickets are $8 each and can be reserved for any show date by calling Mrs. Amy Jarvis at 419-563-5805.
