The Addams Family season

The Addams Family season

Audiences were captivated by the stunning performances, drama, comedy, dancing, singing, orchestral music, costumes, set, lighting, sound, and storytelling in CHAC's wonderful production of The Addams Family.

Congratulations to all students, staff, parents and other helpers who contributed to the outstanding success of the College Musical. Months and months of planning, rehearsing, building, creating, acquiring, making, and organising all came together brilliantly during the four magnificent performances in the transformed Auditorium.

The set, lighting, orchestra and sound system were all installed on Saturday 1 May with the full cast rehearsing with all the correct equipment on Sunday and Monday of the long weekend. Final rehearsals were run on Tuesday and Wednesday with opening night on Thursday 6 May - a truly spectacular opening.

All performances were of a uniformly high standard, and audiences were treated to a great night out in the theatre that was totally entertaining. All participants should be justifiably pleased and proud as the whole production was a wonderful success on so many levels.

Well done everyone for a truly memorable show. We will be singing all those catchy songs in our heads for a long while to come!
