A weird and wonderful family comes to devilishly delightful life in "The Addams Family," a new musical comedy, onstage at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 27, at Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St.

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. 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 family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's boyfriend and his parents.

Inspired by cartoonist Charles Addams, the show was created by "Jersey Boys" authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with award-winning composer and lyricist Andrew Lippa and four-time Tony Award-winner director Jerry Zaks.

Tickets, $30 to $69, are at 360-734-6080 and mountbakertheatre.com.
