On Stage Now until November 27, Only!


THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a macabre musical comedy based on the bizarre and beloved family of characters created by legendary cartoonist Charles Addams, on stage now at the Toronto Centre for the Arts, must close November 27. 

When Wednesday brings her “normal” boyfriend and his parents home for dinner, it is Uncle Fester who makes sure the love birds end up together, and Morticia and Gomez don’t split-up over a silly secret, all the while courting his own lunar love with the moon!

The emotional centre of the family, and show, Fester has done such an excellent job of keeping his clan together – and they are a rather dysfunctional bunch – with such a keen sense of humour, that Dancap Productions want to make him Honourary Mayor of Toronto while he is still in town!

And the critics agree!

 “Uncle Fester, the narrator for this strange love story, guides the audience through the common struggles of family life. As it turns out, the Addams aren’t that much different from any of us and as with the original television show, we end up learning a valuable lesson; family comes first and family comes last.”

“The Addams Family’s Uncle Fester – a delightful Blake Hammond – climbs gracefully into the night sky and frolics with the moon.” Globe and Mail

One scene, the centre piece of the whole show actually, in which Uncle Fester levitates and serenades the moon in the night sky has to be seen to be believed.”  Rue

“Blake Hammond is a lovable old Uncle Fester, obsessed with the moon and full of the milk of unhuman kindness.”  Hamilton Spectator

“A particularly weird and wonderful number performed by Uncle Fester, Blake Hammond, has the bald, portly uncle-of-no-specific-gender-or-preference floating around the stage as he serenades his one true love, the moon.”
