BE PREPARED — the spooky characters from the Addams Family are coming to Ventnor.

Actors from South Wight Youth Theatre are taking on the popular classic — believed to be the first time the musical comedy has been performed on a big stage by an Island theatre group.

The production will be shown at Ventnor Winter Gardens on Friday, January 24, and Saturday, January 25, at 7.30pm, and on Sunday, January 26, at 2.30pm.

The cast includes Will Foreman as Fester, Michael Grist as Gomez, Francesca Toyne as Morticia, Simon Apsey as Pugsley, Willow Samuel as Wednesday and Ines Dali as Grandma.

The family are busy preparing for a visit from their even creepier relatives, but trouble arises when a shady character realises the Addams' eerie hilltop mansion is standing in the way of her dream to sell all the houses in the neighbourhood.
