The Addams Family @ 2:00 p.m. The Addams Family features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Presented by City Circle Acting Company of Coralville. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before: keep a 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. This production is rated PG for mild profanity and sexual innuendo. There will be a special kids matinee performance Friday, June 19 at 1:00 p.m. Tickets are general admission, and camps and school groups are encouraged to attend. Tickets for the general public are $15 for adults and $5 for students/children. Please call 319.248.9372 for group rates.
