Take dad to see the national tour of the new musical THE ADDAMS FAMILY to celebrate Father's Day. The new musical, based on the bizarre family of characters created by Charles Addams, will make its Detroit premiere Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15 at the Fox Theatre. Ticket prices range from $30-70 and are on sale now at, the Fox Theatre and Joe Louis Arena box offices, Hockeytown Authentics in Troy and at

The Addams Family musical features an original spooky story (a father’s worst nightmare really) where Wednesday Addams falls in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met! Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before - keep Wednesday's 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.

Want to win tickets to see the show?  In the comments below tell me how your dad (or husband) is like Gomez Addams. A winning entry will be randomly drawn from all entries received by June 7 for a free Family 4 Pack of Tickets to The Addams Family in Detroit on June 14 at 8:0 p.m.

Does dad like to Tango (dance works)? Does he have a fondness for creepy things? Does he have odd children? Does one of his closest family members have freakishly long hair? You get my drift, just tell me how dad is like Gomez Addams and you may win the FREE tickets!

For more information, visit Detroit performances are Friday, June 14 ( 8:00 p.m.) and  Saturday, June 15 (2:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m.).


  1. How is my husband like Gomez Addams? Putting aside his long term nickname "Freak Child" and his proclivity for wearing an oversized leather top hat everywhere, my husband not only glories in his own weirdness but delights to see it expressed in his children. When my 8 year old daughter recently lamented that girls wear too much pink, and that really black was a much better color, I heard his "Mwah hah hah" all the way from the kitchen. When our 4 year old announced that she wanted to grow up to be a sideshow freak, I mouthed silently to him "she is YOUR child" and he beamed with pride. I always knew I wanted to marry someone stranger than me (so I would feel, you know, less weird), however sometimes I think I went a little overboard.
