February 18, 2019 — On Sunday, February 24, Weston High School’s theater group, “Company” performs scenes from its upcoming spring musical comedy, The Addams Family at “Broadway Bound,” which is becoming an annual town tradition at Emmanuel Church.
The show also features a short program by the faculty of Weston Music Center. It all starts at 4:00 on Sunday afternoon, and runs to 5:30. If you’re new in town, Emmanuel Church is at 285 Lyons Plains Road.
Company’s The Addams Family debuts at the end of March, but this preview is free (with donations always welcome) and is a family-friendly outing with door prizes and a bake sale.
WHS Company is a student-run theater organization founded in 1984, and is the high school’s largest club. The spring show is directed by Liz Morris and co-produced by Beth Lubliner, Patricia Perez Goodrich, and Paul A. Levin.
The Weston Music Center faculty will perform waltzes by Brahms, minstrel songs by Glazunov, songs by George Gershwin, and Prokofiev’s Cello Sonata in C Major. The group’s members include accomplished musicians Allen Brings, Genevieve Brings, Adam Grabois, Margarita Nuller, Steve Lewis, and Wei Tan, all of whom are prominent artists in the greater Connecticut music scene and beyond.
