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.

Bigger and Better than Ever!
This year’s Lymm Festival is from Thursday 28 June until Sunday 8 July and is set to be bigger and better than ever!
There will be over 50 events in various locations in Lymm village which will include dance, drama, music, comedy, art and literature.
The Festival will begin with the mouthwatering gastronomy of the FoodFest at 6.30pm on Thursday 28 June in the village centre. This is one of our most popular events on the calendar, attracting over 2000 people. There are food stalls set up by the various restaurants and eating places in Lymm, plus street entertainment. It will be here where we unveil the Big Picture.
New for this year are two exciting events: LymmFest and the Lymm Fun Run.
LymmFest is our very own music festival on Saturday 30 June from 3pm until late evening, which will be in and around a marquee set up in the Lymm Rugby Club grounds. LymmFest will feature many local bands to showcase their talent and will appeal to all age groups throughout the course of the day. There are plenty of attractions on offer, such as browsing craft stalls, enjoying the food on offer and some children’s entertainment and side stalls.
Lymm Fun Run
Also, to honour the Olympics coming to Britain this year, Lymm is featuring it’s own Fun Run organised by Lymm Runners on Sunday 8 July. The run will be open to ages 11+ and will be mostly off road around Spud Wood. To enter visit the Lymm Runners website.
Of course there will be our famous Scarecrow Trail. This year’s theme is ‘O-Lymm-pics’ and organisers of this event are keen for everyone in the village to get involved. So they have asked families, schools and local businesses to enter Scarecrows and site them around various areas of the village. Trail guides are available at the Box Office in the Village Hall Annex and downloadable from the website.
Art in the Garden
Art in the Garden is a very popular event and this year is going to be ‘magical’. Featured in the garden of 11A Whitbarrow Road, Lymm, the event runs every day throughout the Festival. There are 20 Artists featuring their work, plus an Enchanted Garden for the little ones to explore. During the two weekends, there will be demonstrations in lace-making, wood turning and stone carving.
In the marquee set up at the Lymm Rugby Club, there will be the chance to see Juba do Leao, a Brazillian Ensemble, participate in a tea dance and enjoy the Vaudeville Night or Dr Jazz and the Cheshire Cats. There will also be a ‘silent disco’ for young adults to enjoy.
Numerous events are being put on at Lymm High School this year, including a Dance Night and a Concert. There is music in the form of Lymm’s very own Cheap Cuts, Blues and Jazz Nights and Folk events. There is even a secret cabaret where the location is only revealed at the last minute!! Various choirs are performing at churches within Lymm and of course there will be numerous free exhibitions at the Village Hall. We are running a L’Image photo competition too. There will be a chance to experience the Comedy Night at the Spread Eagle and also a comedy performance written by Ian McMillian.
Jacquie Davies, Festival Director has said, “We particularly want the children and young adults of Lymm to enjoy the Festival this year. So we have put on events which they may like to go. Not only is there FoodFest, Art in the Garden and the Scarecrow Trail, but there will be a ‘silent disco’ in the marquee, Squashbox theatre piece, the photo competition, various events at the high school and music to enjoy at LymmFest. The older children will be able to join in the Fun Run too.”
More details on all events are featured on the Lymm Festival website. A brochure is also being published which will available at various locations in Lymm Village in June.
