A new tour of The Addams Family will return to The Lowry in Salford November 3–7 next year following a successful run in 2017 and will once again be directed by Matthew White. Casting is to be announced.

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and has a shocking secret that only Gomez knows: she’s fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. 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.

The musical has a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, the creators of multi-award-winning Jersey Boys, and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, based on the characters created by Charles Addams.
