Florence Little Theatre Kicks off Live @ Central

Enjoy a preview of their upcoming production, “The 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 Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.


The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Davis Christian Life Center of Central United Methodist Church at the corner of Cheves and Irby Street in downtown Florence. The public is invited!


Live@Central begins with dinner at 5:15 p.m. in the Davis Christian Life Center, and costs $5 per adult and $2 per child (12 and under). Please call the church office at 843-662-3218 if you plan to attend dinner.
