The Addams Family Musical Closes Chapter of Greenhill History

Greenhill Theater produced The Addams Family, a new musical by Andrew Lippa, over the weekend. The show ran Thursday, February 5 through Saturday, February 7, to sell-out crowds at nearly every fantastic performance.

The Addams Family was directed by Catherine Hopkins with assistant director Henry Paolissi. Michael Orman served as technical director; Vonda Bowling, music director; and Kelly McCain choreographed the production. One ensemble cast member declared the show to be "magical" from opening night to the final bow. Many thought it was the best production they had seen yet at Greenhill.
 
The production marked the 40th and last show in Greenhill history to run in the Zale-Fields Theatre, which will soon be repurposed into a larger plan for a complete dining hall renovation. The Zale and Fields families attended the last show on Saturday February 7 and were recognized in a special photograph.
 
Zale-Fields Theatre opened on December 16, 1974, a new “laboratory theater” for the time, complete with lighting, sound, and special effects never before possible in the School’s dramatic productions. On May 15, 2015, the theater will shut its doors, but it will remain in our memories as the first and only the Zale-Fields Theatre opened on December 16, 1974, a new “laboratory theater” complete with lighting, sound, and special effects never before possible in the School’s dramatic productions. On May 15, 2015, the theater will shut its doors, but it will remain in our memories as the first and only theater to serve the Greenhill community for 40 years.
