Following the performance of the Broadway touring production of The Addams Family, the Lively Arts will offer a “real-world” educational opportunity to area high school-age and IUP students who have an interest in theater. The session will be presented following the October 24, 2013, performance in Fisher Auditorium.

The six participating actors and the company manager each have a wealth of experience, with very diverse and interesting backgrounds. For instance, how many Broadway touring show managers used to be a Washington Redskins cheerleader?! The six actors and company manager are listed below, and interested students are encouraged to read about their backgrounds on the Addams Family website.

  • Dan Olson, “Lurch”
  • Jennifer Fogarty, “Wednesday”
  • Blair Anderson, “Alice Beineke”
  • Amanda Bruton, “Grandma”
  • Connor Barth, “Pugsley”
  • Shaun Rice, “Uncle Fester”

The outreach is presented by ArtsPath, the arts-in-education program of the Lively Arts. Questions may be directed to the Jeff Wacker associate director for arts-in-education services, at, or you may call the Lively Arts at 724-357-2787.
