THEATER | 'The Addams Family' 

I grew up devouring "The Addams Family" in every iteration, from the black and white TV show, to the 1991 film starring Christina Ricci as teen icon Wednesday. When "Parks & Recreation" debuted, I couldn't help but think that April Ludgate was what Wednesday would be like as an adult. Grown-up Wednesday is the subject of Greece Theatre Company's family-friendly production of "The Addams Family," which opens this week at Lyric Theatre. In this story, Wednesday has fallen in love with a sweet, smart, normal young man, and her family hosts a dinner Wednesday's boyfriend and his parents.

"The Addams Family" will be presented Friday, October 26, through Sunday, November 4, at Lyric Theatre Main Stage (440 East Avenue). Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 26; Saturday, October 27; Thursday, November 1; Friday, November 2 (ASL Interpreted); and Saturday, November 3; and 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 28; and Sunday, November 4. Tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for seniors and students. 234-5636;
