The Hendersonville Community Theatre presents ‘The Addams Family, A New Musical’

The Hendersonville Community Theatre presents ‘The Addams Family, A New Musical’

Welcome to kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, a family dealing with the same challenges faced by any other family: the Addams kids are growing up. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. 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 – keep a 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. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change.

The Hendersonville Community Theatre’s Second Stage presents Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”

This award-winning classic of the modern stage examines the complexities of marriage and betrayal. In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor and his wife to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.

Flat Rock Playhouse presents “Rounding Third”

Rounding Third is a bro-medy about 2 coaches. Don is a coach who believes that winning is what is most important in baseball, and he is all about the game. Michael is his assistant coach, a businessman who believes that kids should have fun when they play baseball. These conflicting personalities instantly clash. Don’s kid is the star pitcher of the team, and Michael’s kid can barely remember to keep his shoelaces tied. In addition, there are extramarital affairs going on (though the truth of them is well-hidden), and Michael’s job is not all that it seems.

Flat Rock Playhouse presents “All Shook Up”

Flat Rock Playhouse presents “All Shook Up”

Travel back in time to 1955 to a small, dreary cookie-cutter town where everything is about to change. A young mechanic, Natalie, dreams for adventure and love. Suddenly, a mysterious, leather-jacketed, guitar-playing, hip-swinging stranger shakes up the people of this small town as they discover romance, rock & roll, and riotous fun! This musical fantasy is built around songs made famous by Elvis Presley including hits like “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Love Me Tender,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” and, “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. Backed by a rousing Elvis score, this crazy and uplifting musical comedy will have audiences jumpin’ out of their blue suede shoes! “This is a great big Broadway show that never loses its mind or its light touch, with the accent on fun. It’s a roustabout’s joyride.” Journal News “A mixed-up merry-go-round of fun anchored by all those Presley tunes. Lightweight, to be sure, but it floats very nicely indeed.” Associated Press
