Shoppers set for spooky surprise from Addams family

Solihull Editorial 10th Feb, 2015 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

SHOPPERS in Solihull are in for a spooky surprise when the Addams family come to town.

Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester and the rest of the family will be around to give shoppers a special Valentine’s Day greeting in Touchwood shopping centre, near Lakeland, all day on Saturday (February 14).

The cast of Knowle Musical Society will be getting into character ahead of their week-long run of The Addams Family musical at Solihull Arts Complex, from March 9 to 14.

Director, Richard Agg, said: “This is a great chance for people to take a break from their shopping and come and meet this rather unusual family, have their picture taken with the cast or find out a bit more about the show.

“Rehearsals are going really well and we can’t wait to bring this quirky, incredibly funny show to the stage in March.”

The society is also running a half-term colouring competition with two VIP tickets to opening night up for grabs.
