The official show photographer is Joe McNemar. The production is sponsored by the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture, and History and The Cultural Foundation of Harrison County.
“With our inaugural production of Annie in December of 2019, we gave audiences a preview of what we can accomplish, and the level of professionalism we strive for with RGCT. I think audiences are going to be amazed by what we've got planned for this show,” hints Artistic Director, David Cotton-Zinn.
The production boasts a talented cast of twenty-five community members from Harrison, Marion, Taylor, and Monongalia counties.

But this show 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, she 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. Playing the role of Wednesday’s love interest is Franky Satterfield as Lucas Beineke, and his totally “normal” parents are being played by Sarah Nale as Alice Beineke and Garret Cotton-Elam as Mal Beineke.
Full of comedy and your beloved childhood characters, this theatrical production is rated PG-13 for adult humor and mild language.
