Pueblo County High Schools’ Arts Academy has begun the production of the classic The Addams Family. Being pursued and directed by Taylor Gilman, the cast will come together to perform on several occasions, including opening night on Thursday, Mar. 9 at 7 p.m., Mar.10 and Mar. 11 at 7 p.m. and Mar.12 at 2 p.m.
Cast members and tech crew have dedicated time since Nov. of 2022. They have been pursuing the production into the start of Mar. 2023 with hard work and commitment. This includes all tech, drama construction and art classes that put work, effort and ideas toward the Addams Family musical.
Moss Ray, junior, said, “I'm excited to see how timeframes and elements clash within the production, and have grown intrigued to see how PCHS will come together to put on such a flawless production.”
The Addams Family is seen as an American classic in both comic literature,television and movies. This is due to its large history of influence and impact on many people. The musical is comedy based, and began with simple comic panels. An anomaly and award winning piece is admirably welcomed onto the stage of PCHS.
Taylor Gilman, the TAA instructor, stated, “The Addams Family musical is going to be TAA’s best production to date!”
PCHS is honored to have students, volunteers, and educators within the department that make this experience possible for the entire school and are excited to conclude the development of the musical. Come out to support your school, friends, peers, and instructors by contributing and viewing the upcoming Spring Musical.
