Washington University Medical Campus students will get creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky, and altogether ooky in their performance of “The Addams Family Musical” March 22, 23 and 24 in St. Louis College of Pharmacy’s Auditorium, 4530 Parkview Place, on the Medical Campus.
The production is the 13th annual musical produced, directed and performed by Medical Campus students. The cast, crew, orchestra and stagehands consist of about 80 students from the School of Medicine, the Medical Scientist Training Program, the Division of Biology & Biomedical Sciences, the Division of Biostatistics, and the programs in Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Audiology and Communication Sciences.
Tickets cost $12 for Medical Campus students and $17 for general admission. They can be purchased on the musical’s website. Tickets are $20 at the door.
“This experience is unique to a medical school,” said Mary Beth McHugh, a co-producer of the musical and a second-year occupational therapy doctoral student. “The opportunity to create a musical with students across all disciplines serves as a creative outlet amidst academic stress, and it establishes friendships through working toward building a quality production. The amount of work and heart that went into this production, from weekly rehearsals and building sets, is one I will never forget.”
As an added bonus, several faculty members will make cameo appearances during the performances.
