The Fleming Theatre
The Addams Family
March 15 – 17 at 7 p.m.
In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family: the Addams kids are growing up.
The Fleming Theatre is the hub of performance at TASIS, boasting a 300-seat capacity and a fully professional technical lighting and sound rig, giving our students an authentic experience of live performance both on stage, behind the scenes, and as part of the audience.
The Fleming Theatre hosts all school productions, from the Lower School’s Fourth and Fifth Grade Theatre Night presentations to the Middle and Upper School musical productions.
Upper School students in the Drama and IB Theatre Arts classes also perform a wide variety of dramatic pieces, and the theater is frequently used by students to showcase their directorial, dramatic, dance, and musical talents. In addition, the school hosts professional theater companies and performers throughout the year.
Student productions have included Aladdin Jr., Grease, Our Town, The Government Inspector, Shakespeare’s A Midsummer's Night Dream, and the annual Blues Night and Talent Show – all staged in the Fleming Theatre.
