‘The Addams Family’ Announced as 2023 Evansville School Corp Summer Musical
In my opinion, an item that should be at or near the top of everyone's "Summer in Evansville" bucket list has to be catching a performance of the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation (EVSC) and EVSC Foundation Summer Musical. This collaborative production gives students in the 7th through 12th grades the opportunity to join the cast, orchestra, and crew.
If you've ever seen a production at one of the individual high schools within the EVSC, then you already know what kind of talent there is in Evansville. Now just imagine what kind of show to expect when you combine the talent from all of the schools in Evansville. Actually, you don't have to imagine, you can see that talent on full display when those students put on the 35th annual show, which we now know will be a musical production of The Addams Family.
The show, in a nutshell, tells the story of a grown-up Wednesday Addams and her new "normal" boyfriend, and her family's attempts to put an end to this relationship. Fans can see The Addams Family July 13-16, 2023, in the Aiken Theatre inside the Old National Events Plaza.
It's More Than Just a Great Show
You should absolutely attend the EVSC summer musical because you know you will see an amazing show, but there is more to it. By attending a performance, you are helping fund programs throughout the EVSC. Proceeds from the summer musical go towards educator grants, classroom enrichment activities, and other student experiences. In 2021, the EVSC Foundation (and the Public Education Foundation) raised more than $1,343,000 for these important programs.
