With music and lyrics by renowned musical composer Andrew Lippa, this Tony nominated musical follows the iconic spooky family – The Addams Family.
Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met.
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.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY, THE MUSICAL promises to be a fun, kooky night at the theatre for all ages. For those who grew up with the wonderful characters created by Charles Addams, this is a great new take on the beloved family whilst offering plenty of nostalgia.

Timeless and evocative, Stephen Sondheim’s 7 time Tony Award Winner COMPANY is regarded as one of the great modern musicals.
On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor, Robert, contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends force the habitually single Robert to question his rigid bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions.
COMPANY features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of Sondheim’s best known songs including the renowned finale Being Alive. With discussions about marriage, divorce, homosexuality and commitment, COMPANY is a sophisticated and honest look at modern adult relationships.

New South Wales University Theatrical Society’s (NUTS) upcoming production is a contemporary farce by Uruguayan playwright Gabriel Calderón, MY LITTLE DOLL (THE FARCE) centres around a dysfunctional middle upper class family where a young woman becomes a pawn in an elaborate revenge plot by her uncle against her father. Narrated by the family’s butler, this dark comedy dances between “burlesque and grotesque” as the daughter adopts her doll as an alter ego.
Translated into English by Veronica Barac, the frenetic rhythm of this controversial dark comedy takes you on a powerful journey into the fragmented psyches of these very twisted characters. The original Spanish production Mi Muñequita (La Farsa), shocked and delighted audiences all over Latin America and now it is our pleasure to bring this story to Australian audiences for the first time.
This play contains themes of child abuse, domestic violence, murder and suicide.
SEASON DETAILS :- 18th – 22nd October; 18th-21st 7.00pm, 22nd 2.00pm at Studio 1, Gate 2, University Of New South Wales.
‘Once upon a time’ … Stephen Sondheim’s treasured music theatre favourite INTO THE WOODS (Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine, originally directed on Broadway by James Lapine) delivers its take on precisely all that happens after ‘Happily Ever After’ and yes indeed ‘the truth hurts’.
A modern politically corrected twist is applied to well-known classic fairy-tales, with a terrific cast of great voices who each evoke exactly the right mood during their performances. The original fairy tale of a childless baker and his wife who had been cursed by a witch, has been combined with the Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel fairy tales.
