A Series of Funfortunate Events!

Desert Star’s latest parody takes on the famous, freaky Addams Family, with a Utah cultural twist.

 

The story of the monstrous Adams Clan, as they attempt to outwit a greedy oil baroness, Mrs. Measley, who is intent on destroying their home to get at the oil underneath. The colorful characters include the wacky inventor, Groucho, his adoringly morbid wife, Cruella, and a wise-cracking, disembodied head named, Bob. When the evil Mrs. Measley sends her son, Horace, undercover to spy on the Adams, he falls head over heels in love with their Frankstein-esque daughter, Dementia. Will the Adams be able to keep their happy, haunted home? Comedy, romance, and adventure are all on the docket for this delightful send up of the beloved franchise, as well as topical humor, torn from today’s headlines.
