Check out the Addams Family!

So October's coming up - and that means spooky goings on in the lead up to Halloween!

If you've got kids, an excellent spooky suggestion to entertainment them is the Addams Family musical. It's a Broadway-style show featuring the favorite characters from the old black and white family show. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait until March, though!

The cast of the original '64 TV show

Although the Addams Family is best known as a TV show (or you might remember the two popular movies) it actually started after-life as a cartoon in the New Yorker - running from 1938 until cartoonist Charles Addams.

The TV show inspired by the comic kicked off in 1964 - and established the characters we know and love today.

The Addams Family show looks to be a corker - featuring Nathan Lane as Gomez, Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia and Annaleigh Ashford as Wednesday.

Performances begin April 10th, 2010 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on West 46th Street, New York. You can get your claws on The Addams Family tickets here.

And if the Addams Family sounds too spooky, there are still High school musical tickets for fans of Disney's popular HSM trilogy, or JACOBS THEATRE TICKETS

I saw The Addams Family last year and loved it! Lane and Neuwirth were fantastic as well as Krysta Rodriguez. The story line and music were very entertaining and tickets weren't cheap, i got them from ...hopefully they do make it on Broadway again.
It’s one of my favourite shows; I would see it again in a heartbeat!
