No pantomime in Axminster this year, as Axminster Drama Club’s youngsters prepare for the Addams Family musical

Youngsters at Axminster Drama Club are well into their rehearsal for their latest offering for the stage – The Addams Family musical.

Instead of a pantomime, the society decided to stage a youth production, which will be staged from Friday, January 25 to Saturday, January 26, with a matinee also being staged on the Saturday.

The story revolves around the kooky family, and in particular, Wednesday Addams, who is all grown up and has a shocking secret that only her father, Gomez, knows. She’s fallen in love with a sweet young man from a respectable family.

With his cherished Morticia in the dark will Gomez manage to keep his daughter’s secret until the two families meet for a fateful dinner with hilarious consequences?

The cast has been rehearsing for the show over many weeks and the backstage crew have been creating the set and costumes.

Tickets are available at and will be available in the town after Christmas.
