Adams Family

THE ADDAMS FAMILY is bringing their entire clan, whether living, dead or undecided, to the MES Theatre at Mediacorp. Direct from UK, this production showcases a brand new orchestration and presentation, you will not want to miss! 

Written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, the creators of multi award-winning Jersey Boys, and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, THE ADDAMS FAMILY musical comedy features an original story, and every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the princess of darkness, has grown up and kept a shocking secret that only Gomez knows; she’s fallen in love with a sweet smart young man from a normal respectable family! And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keeping this secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents. Two different worlds are about to collide. Will love triumph, or will everyone go home vaguely depressed?

Carrie Hope Fletcher

Carrie Hope Fletcher as Wednesday in The Addams Family

1. When did you start performing in musical theatre and what made you decide to develop a career as an actress?

CHF: My first role was at 7 years old as Young Eponine in Les Miserables in London’s West End. Performing is really the only thing I’ve ever been good at and felt confident in.

2. Please share with us more about your role as Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family?

CHF: Wednesday is still the princess of darkness that we all know and love but now she’s almost eighteen years old and she’s got a boyfriend from a normal family. She’s in love and suddenly thinks like puppy dogs and Disneyworld appeal to her and it’s a very confusing time for our young Wednesday!

3. What is the biggest challenge that you faced in your role?

CHF: Running around and belting out songs in a corset! Tougher than it looks!

4. What’s your favourite parts in The Addams Family?

CHF: I love ‘Crazier Than You’. It’s a fantastic duet between Wednesday and her boyfriend Lucas in which Wednesday is saying get on board with my craziness or move along! It makes me feel feisty and in control. I love it!

5. You are into acting, writing books, an established online influencer with huge followers and managing your You Tube channel, how do you manage to do them all so well?

CHF: I get bored very quickly so if I have a spare few minutes I’ll find a way to fill them which is how YouTube and writing came about in the first place!

6. What’s next for you?

CHF: I’ve just announced my fourth book (third novel) which is due out July 12th 2018 but beyond that, who knows! The tough life of an actress means constantly auditioning and hoping something new comes along!

7. Any advice for young people who aspire to be like you and embark on a career in musical theatre?

CHF: Rejection is inevitable even if you’re the best performer on the planet. Persevere. You’re only one yes away from the best job of your life!

8. Lastly, what would you like to say to our Singapore readers and audience who are looking forward to catch “The Addams Family”?

CHF: The kooky clan are excited to see you!
