They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious, and spooky!!  The musical sensation, “THE ADDAMS FAMILY” takes to the stage April 1, 2, 8 and 9 at 7:30 pm at Millis High School Auditorium, 245 Plain Street, Millis. 

This odd wealthy aristocratic clan delights in the macabre and are simply unaware or unconcerned that other people find them bizarre or frightening

Based on the classic Addams’ cartoon characters and the vintage television series, THE ADDAMS FAMILY characters were the creation of Charles Addams.  

His unique drawings combined with the twisted, macabre, and just plain weird, yet with charm, wit, and enchantment brought him great acclaim. The creators of the “Jersey Boys” Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, along with famed composer/lyricist Andrea Lippa have brought the frightfully delightful world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley, and Lurch to life on stage. 

“The Addams Family is presented by special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide” This program is supported in part by a grant from the Millis Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass. Cultural Council. Sponsored in part by Middlesex Savings Bank.


In early 1993, Millis resident Rya Lory offered an acting class through the Millis Recreation Department.  Ms. Lory had a strong background in theater and dramatic arts in New York, and had recently moved to the Boston area, settling in Millis.

Her original goal was for the student/actors to present script readings on stage.  However, the amateur actors exceeded her goals, and presented their first play in November of 1993 — Neil Simon's comedy “Plaza Suite,” which incidentally was a sell out!!!Since 1995, the Millis Theatre Group has become a non-profit community theater membership organization, which produces a fall and spring play each year.In 1992, the theater group formed a partnership with Millis Middle and High School, where the group volunteers production of an annual spring musical with the schools.
