They’re creepy and they’re kooky, Mysterious and spooky, They’re all together ooky, The Addams Family! (snap snap)

The Branson Regional Arts Council is thrilled to present The Addams Family, a comical new musical that embraces the wackiness in every family!

Live stage shows are running now through October 29, 2023. Showtimes are 7pm (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) and 2pm (Sunday). Tickets are $20 (Adults 18+) and $12 (Youth 4-17) and can be purchased online at BransonArts.org/tix or by calling the Historic Owen Theatre Box Office at 417-336-4255.

This musical is Rated PG-13. Parental guidance is suggested due to adult innuendo, profanity, and scenes containing comical torture.

This award winning stage production features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family.

The production is directed and choreographed by Jacob Deck, along with his assistant directors Leslie Austin and Kyle Blanchard. The production team includes: Karie Dykeman, Kristine Brown and Kim Hale (Producers), Julie Brinkman (Music Director), Dimitri Tsahiridis (Stage Manager), Cyrsten Rainey (Assistant Stage Manager/Props Manager), Kyle Blanchard (Technical Director and Set Design), Pamela Meadows (Lighting Designer), Myles Stevens (Audio Technician), Lacey Kellett (Social Media), Josh Silvy (Theatre Inventory), Marshall Meadows (Photography), and Jim Barber (BRAC Executive Director / Marketing and Design).

The cast of The Addams Family include: Kyle Blanchard (Gomez), Michelle Baker (Morticia), Kyle Denton (Uncle Fester), Jennifer Buttell (Grandma), Avery Tillette (Wednesday), Hope Menard (Puglsey), Brenna Prince (Puglsey), Joshua McGeough (Lurch), Joey Blackwood (Lucas), Kyle Bradley (Mal), Kellsey Bradley (Alice), Charis Boulden, Somer Dean, Emily Hanner, Madison Hatfield, Jason Prince, Melinda Prince and Michael Sager (Ancestors).

The Branson Regional Arts Council’s 2023 Theatre Season continues with William Shakespeare’s classic play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as adapted for the stage by Josh Boulden.

Four public performances are scheduled at the Historic Owen Theatre in downtown Branson on Thursday, September 7th (7pm), Sunday, September 10th (2pm), Thursday, September 14th (7pm), and Sunday, September 17th (2pm).

Advance Reserved Tickets are recommended and available online at BransonArts.org/tix or by calling the Historic Owen Theatre Box Office at 417-336-4255. $20 Adults (18+), $12 Youth (4-17).

Attention Area Schools: A special matinee performance is being  planned for Monday, September 11th  at 11:00am for area public, private and home schools to attend. This will include an educational aspect where the students will have an opportunity to learn more about Shakespeare and this production. Interested teachers or education leaders should contact BRAC for further information at edu@bransonarts.org or 417-336-4255.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare in about 1595 or 1596. The BRAC production, as adapted by Josh Boulden, is set in Athens, and consists of several subplots that revolve around the marriage of Theseus and Hippolyta. One subplot involves a conflict among four Athenian lovers. Another follows a group of six amateur actors rehearsing the play which they are to perform before the wedding. Both groups find themselves in a forest inhabited by fairies who manipulate the humans and are engaged in their own domestic intrigue. The play is one of Shakespeare’s most popular and is widely performed.

The production is under the direction of Josh Boulden, and cast members include: Megan King (Hermia), Jon Michael Thompson (Lysander), Josie Holman (Helena), Seth Coker (Demetrius), Cody Croxford (Oberon/Theseus), Olyvia Shaw (Titania/Hippolyta), Sara Boehm (Robin Goodfellow/Philostrate), Mariah K. Garrett (Nick Bottom),  Jackie Zliczewski (Peter Quince), Brandon Farrar (Francis Flute/Egeus), Natalie Hensarling (Tom Snout), Kahrie Stegman (Snug), and CJ McElhiney (Robin Starveling).

Josh Boulden – Director

“This specific adaptation will tell the classic story of crossed lovers, magical fairies, and fantastical transformation we’ve grown to love. But this version will bring the play to life utilizing the powers of not only the text, but of music, movement, and mask. I wanted to tell this story with minimal costumes, props, and sets to bring greater attention to the actors themselves as they double roles, play instruments, and translate the story through movement. It is the desire of the cast and crew for the audience to understand the poetic text Shakespeare penned so long ago. Combining a tribute to classical traveling theatre with modern theatrical devices every element of this production has been designed to whimsically take the audience on a journey of magical romance and comical mayhem.” – Josh Boulden – Director

Josh Boulden is a professional actor, acting coach, and fight choreographer from Annapolis, MD. He trained at the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Academy at The George Washington University in D.C. where he spent an intense year immersed in classical acting and Shakespeare’s text. He’s been in the theatre industry for over 10 years, has performed in a dozen works of Shakespeare, and is blessed to be in his seventh season as an actor at Sight & Sound Theatres in Branson. Before that he spent some time acting and teaching for the Annapolis Shakespeare Company, and currently teaches and directs for the Institute for Cultural Communicators. You may have seen him in a past Branson Regional Arts Council production such as Blithe SpiritThe Glass Menagerie, and all of the Shakespeare in the Parks, and you will currently see him serving in the roles of board member and director for this fall’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The production crew for A Midsummer Night’s Dream include: Josh Boulden (Director), Ryan J. Hippe (Ass. Director and Media Producer), RosAlie Burr (Production Stage Manager), Daylin Paulson (Lighting Designer/Ass. Stage Manager),  Madi Trammell (Music Director and Composer), Jonathan Crum (Costume Designer), Tori Hurley (Ass. Costume Designer), Audrey Noll (Choreographer), Josiah Mayer (Ass. Choreographer), Forrest Wilson (Poster Design) and Ian Lalhum (Set Engineer).

The band of musicians include: Elisha D. Qalo (Guitar), Madi Trammell (Clarinet & Supporting winds/strings), Tori Hurley and  Jon Michael Thompson (Drums), Kahrie Stegman (Flute & Lead Winds), Natalie Hensarling (Supporting Winds).

    RATED PG13 | Mature and Risqué Content (May not be appropriate for younger audiences)

    The Branson Regional Arts Council presents a comedy musical, lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Monty Python’s Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people.

    The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “[fac_icon icon=”music”] always look on the bright side of life.

    Here’s just one of our many rave reviews for this production…

    “Just wanted to share with you how much we enjoyed Spamalot on the opening night! What a marvelous performance by one and all. I met a woman during intermission who said she had buried her mother that day and really needed the show. Then she happened to be the audience member picked to go up on stage. She thoroughly enjoyed herself and made the show doubly memorable for her. I told several cast member including King Arthur the story and they immediately went over to her to express their condolences and hug her as we were leaving. What a great cast! We love all the shows but this was our very favorite. Our daughters were huge Monty Python fans when they were 10 and 12 so we took them to Minneapolis to see Spamalot as that was the only place in the midwest where we could find it. Thanks for bringing it to Branson!” – Debbie Redford and Jae Jones
