The Addams Family - The Musical!
Knutsford Musical Theatre Company (KMTC) is a small, friendly amateur musical theatre society that has been performing shows since 1943 and who aim to put on two shows every year.
KMTC is pleased to announce that their next show is the Addams Family. The story in the musical is drawn entirely from the original cartoons rather than the TV or movie series. The original show opened at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, Broadway on March 8, 2010, costing $15m to produce. By June 2011 it had had over 500 performances and grossed $62m.
The Addams Family Musical by the KMTC will be showing at Northwich Memorial Court from 28th - 31st October 2015! You can buy tickets on the KMTC website.
This truly ghoulish comedy musical comes to you at Halloween this year. The show opens with an annual gathering of all family members (living, dead, and undecided) in a graveyard.
The plot revolves around every father's nightmare. Gomez Addams is caught in an impossible situation as his daughter, Wednesday Addams (the ultimate princess-of-darkness) has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet young man from a respectable family.
If that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother, Morticia. Gomez must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents.
With a dynamic cast and direction team, The Addams Family will build on the recent sucesses of this vibrant theatre company.

Press Release via Alison Aldridge (Secretary)
A sizzling summer of success to follow some wonderful Winter Warmers is the aim of organisers of the Lymm Festival 2014.
From June 19th to 29th you can be certain that venues in the village will be offering a great range of events under sunny skies (less certain).
The star attraction will be Stuart Maconie, co-host of the BBC Radio 6 Music Show. Hopefully, his colleague Mark Radcliffe will have told him of the great Lymm welcome he got last year. Stuart will perform at the Statham Lodge Hotel on June 23rd.
Musical treats abound, Little Jo and the Misfits and Jon Brindley, who was at the Lymm Folk Club last month, will be returning on June 21st. There's a Sixties Night at the Lymm Hotel on June 19th and Blues Night at the Golf Club the following evening. Local singing talent will be in full voice at the Big Sing Night on June 24th.
Outdoors, Lymm Hall will be the delightful setting for a new innovation, an Edwardian Garden party on June 21st whilst the following day the popular Open Gardens returns.
Lymm will ring with laughter because, in addition to the, always popular Comedy Night, Simon Plumb is staging highlights from last winter's Rugby Club panto’ – ‘Scrooged.’
The Lymm Festival is increasingly a year round event. All four Winter Warmers were sell outs. Grateful thanks go to the appreciative audiences and the volunteers who put on memorable occasions, from Robert Powell and Gabrielle Drake ‘Celebrating Jane Austen’ and Stephen Hough's magical piano recital in St Peter's Church; to the Blues Night and film shows featuring ‘Frozen’ and ‘Philomena’ in a packed United Reformed Church on Brookfield Road.
All this augurs well for a great summer Lymm Festival and you can keep up to date with event and ticket information by going to the website.
If you are planning an event to be part of this year's festival, you haven't got long to make your application. Friday March 21st is the deadline for these to be returned. Forms are available from the Artistic Director Jacquie Davies at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Charity Donation is Music to Pre-School’s Ears
Children at Outhrington Pre-School can now hear more than the birds singing in their outdoor play area thanks to a donation, to the tune of £500, from Lymm and District Round Table.
The pre-school, based on Outhrington Crescent, Lymm, is now the proud owner of an outdoor musical station.
Jo Cooper, a member of the pre-school’s fundraising committee, said: “We were aware of the Round Table and their charity work so we wrote to them hoping they would consider us. Thankfully, they were able to fund the entire cost of the equipment which will support the children’s motor skills, social interaction, confidence and self-esteem, as well as helping them have lots of fun!”
Outhrington Pre-School is just one of the many beneficiaries of Lymm and District Round Table’s latest batch of charitable donations, with a total of £4,500 also having gone towards organisations such as the Walton Lea Project, Warrington RSPCA, Brainwave, Lymm British Legion, Canal Street Day Centre, Warrington Hospital Maternity Ward and Cotebrook House.
“We’ve raised record figures again this year, so, as a result more and more charities and community groups will get cheques sent their way,” said Round Table chairman Chris Stephens. “We’re always on the look-out for worthy causes so feel free to get in touch if you’re a charity, group or individual who needs some support.”
