New York Film Academy Musical Theatre Department Presents


New York, NY, Nov. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The New York Film Academy (NYFA) Musical Theatre Department proudly presents its 2022 Fall Musical, The Addams Family, at their Battery Park (New York City) campus from Friday, November 18 through Sunday, November 20, 2022

This TONY Award-nominated musical comedy with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice centers around the main character, Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness. Now grown, she falls in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. The young man meets the Addams family on one fateful night when both collide in a hysterical, spooky evening of theatre.

NYFA’s Fall performance is directed by Robert W. Schneider, choreographed by Catherine DeLuce, and musical direction by Miles Plant. The company includes talented NYFA Musical Theatre students representing eight countries across the globe. Schneider says, “I am so excited to bring this revised version of The Addams Family to New York City. The show’s original writers have substantially revised the show from its Broadway premiere in 2010. We cannot wait for New York audiences to see what many worldwide have seen since the show was first performed in Manhattan.” 

Kirsty Cates, NYFA’s Musical Theatre Department Chair and the show’s Co-Producer, says, “As always, I am incredibly proud of the work done by our amazing creative team headed by NYFA’s long-time faculty member, Robert Schneider. Our students, who study with us in the musical theatre center of the world, share their many talents and skills learned in the classroom in this funny, touching, and exciting musical production.”
