Our Project

We are aiming to raise between £1,000 - £1,500 for our upcoming production of 'The Addams Family', a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it's every father's nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, had 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 wasn't upsetting enough, Wednesday 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 a fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents. 

Who are we?

CHMS (Central Hall Musical Society) is the leading musical society at the University of York. Our society provides students with the opportunity to perform in various styles of shows, from full-scale musicals to variety showcases. 'The Addams Family' is the society's chosen Summer Musical and consists of an incredible 18-person cast and supporting production team. Our executive team consisting of Abagail Mortimer and Seonaid Bennett as Co-Producers, Darcey Chambers as Director, and Will Parsons as Musical Director are incredibly proud of the team and urge everyone to come and watch the show!

Where will the money go?

The majority of the money raised through this fundraising project will go towards the show's creative aspects including the set, costumes, and props. We want to transport the audience to The Addams Family Mansion in New York to meet the ghoulish American Family which is only possible with the aid of financial resources, which will help us to achieve the creative vision of our designers and director. The rest of the money will support other aspects of the show, including transportation and the show's marketing team by funding flyers, posters, and electronic billboards as well as potential radio and newspaper interviews, which will spread the word about this musical beyond the University to the wider York community.
