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.

Ten stunning Lymm gardens are ready once again to open their gates as part of Lymm Festival. This is a unique opportunity to see private gardens at their best and spend a delightful afternoon touring between each one, perhaps stopping along the way to sample some of the refreshments on offer such as Pimm's or a homemade meringue.
The gardens as always range in style, form and function, making sure that there is something to please everyone. On offer are few of our favourite gardens from previous years, showing how they have matured and developed over time, alongside seven magnificent new additions. Each ticket includes a garden brochure describing the gardens and a map for you to plan your individual tour, so please feel free to view as many or as few as you like!
This year’s ticket also includes free entry to a Lymm National Garden Society garden the following Sunday: 29th June. This would cost £4 if purchased separately so we are very pleased to be able to add this to our event. (Further details are included in the Open Gardens Brochure).
Tickets can be purchased using the ticket order form, on line via the Festival Website or at the Festival Box Office. Last year was a sell out so be sure to buy tickets early. Tickets sold are in aid of St Rocco’s Hospice, mini-events and refreshments in individual gardens will be in aid of gardener’s favourite charities.
For more details of the gardens for 2014 and a sneaky peek into the preparations behind the scenes please follow us on Facebook at Lymm Open Gardens.

The Lymm Beer Festival is set to return for its third year and organisers Lymm and District Round Table are promising it will be bigger and better than ever.
Following on from previous success, this year’s charity event will take place on Friday 6th (6pm-11pm) and Saturday 7th (noon-11pm) September in Lymm Village Hall. Two dozen cask ales will be on offer plus a selection of ciders, perrys and wine.
There will also be live music throughout both days including the Lymm Concert Orchestra and local bands, a quiz and hot food served by the Lymm Ladies Circle, who will also be providing free soft drinks for non-drinkers. The entry fee is £5 (£3 Saturday afternoon and discounts for CAMRA members) which includes a pint glass created specifically for the event. All cask ales and ciders are at one great price of £2.50 a pint.
The Round Table is also seeking organisations to sponsor a cask for £80 for which their names will appear in the programme, at the event and on the festival’s Twitter and Facebook feeds. Sponsors will also receive four tickets and £20 of beer tokens.
Lymm and District Round Table member and beer festival organiser Ian Newhouse said: “The beer festival is fast becoming an established Lymm event and we're hoping for another great turnout this year. We're offering more ales to choose from, there'll be some great entertainment on show and, of course, if we can raise more funds for charity in the process then all the better."
