Knight Theatre, St. Norbert College’s student-run theatre group celebrating its 25th anniversary, will present “The Addams Family,” a new musical comedy, Jan. 24 through Feb 2. Performances will be held at the Webb Theatre in the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus. All shows will be held at 7:30 p.m. except for Saturday and Sunday matinee performances at 2 p.m.

The Addams Family 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 weren’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.

Tickets for the event can be purchased at the St. Norbert College box office by calling 920-403-3950 or online at All reserved seats are $15.
