We have a tremendous season lined up, full of music, comedy and all the extra surprises you’ve come to expect from HCT!
The Addams Family
Musical – May 13, 14, 15 and 20, 21, 22
This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice and Drama Desk Award winner Andrew Lippa.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY 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.
Come meet the family. We’ll leave the lights off for you.
Contains adult language and adult situations that are suitable for teens and up, the living, the dead, and the undecided!

Join us for our first ever “HCT After Dark” production of “Evil Dead The Musical! Providing and avant-garde show featuring college students and adults to perform in and enjoy, EVIL DEAD tells the tale of 5 college kids who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like a horror, it’s not! The songs are hilariously campy and the show is bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit. EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL unearths the old familiar story: boy and friends take a weekend getaway at abandoned cabin, boy expects the best, boy unleashes ancient evil spirit, friends turn into Candarian Demons, boy fights until dawn to survive. As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, “camp” takes on a whole new meaning with uproarious numbers like “All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons,” “Look Who’s Evil Now” and “Do the Necronomicon.”
