Eight former students of ArtsEd, the independent performing arts school based in Chiswick, have been cast in the UK wide tour of The Addams Family.
Based on the cult classic franchise of the same name, the show will premiere in Woking at the New Victoria Theatre on 17 August 2021. The show will also visit Milton Keynes, Dartford, Salford, Glasgow, Stoke, Liverpool, Nottingham, Cardiff, Sheffield, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Bradford, Newcastle, Oxford and Bromley.
ArtsEd students hold two of the leading roles in the performance, those of Wednesday and Pugsly Addams. Thrilled to reveal their casting in the performance, the ArtsEd alumni announced their roles on social media.

“So excited to finally announce that I will be playing Wednesday Addams in the UK tour of The Addams Family from August this year!!! So grateful to get the opportunity to play one of my dream roles professionally and cannot wait to get started!!’.
Abigail Brodie, cast as ensemble, said:
“I’m so excited to be finally able to share this (been waiting since Feb last year)! It’s not lost on me how lucky I am to be going into work out of the pandemic and be part of the theatres reopening. Can’t wait to (literally) dust off my shoes and get going!”.
