Addams Family
The Addams Family features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. 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. Now, 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 Wednsday’s ‘normal’ boyfrend and his parents.

A Mickey Christmas Thursday Night

North Pointe’s 3rd hour theater class put forth a performance to remember on Thursday night. This talented cast led by John Fitzner as Mickey Mouse had the audience laughing and enjoying the true meaning of Christmas as they delivered their performance of this years production, ‘A Mickey Christmas’. The stunning electric lights parade gave a great and colorful start to a well performed adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol’. Writer Chris Holtzem said, “This show has been so fun to work on and to watch the students bring some of my favorite Disney characters to life is incredible. Seeing the growth from these actors is simply fantastic and I can’t wait to see what they achieve in their future of acting.”

A MICKEY CHRISTMAS ‘OPENING NIGHT’

In the fantastic opening night of ‘A Mickey Christmas’ North Pointe’s 1st hour Theatre Class led by Peter Carlson (Mickey Mouse) took the audience through an adaptation of Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol.” Mickey was visited by many of his cartoon friends as they helped him find the true meaning of Christmas. The cast led the audience through this version of the play with characters from all different ages of Disney animation to help tell this heart warming and spirit lifting tale.  “I’m not sure if I’ve ever been more proud of a cast than I am of these kids tonight.” Said Director Dave Coffman.  “These students are amazing; growing to not only love the idea of performing (which they did not in the beginning) but becoming performers as well.”
