theater

The Addams Family at the Charles R. Wood Theater, 7 p.m., Charles R. Wood Theater, 207 Glen St., Glens Falls. 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, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus Lippa, Brickman, and Elice’s musical: the Addams kids are growing up. The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, however, is now an 18-year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family — the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And to make matters worse, she has invited the Beinekes to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change. Tickets start at $20. For tickets, go to the Wood Theater box office, call 518-480-4878 or go to www.woodtheater.org.

They are all from our local area: Roc Kauffman, Christie Keegan, Kelvin Keraga, Stephanie Moffett Hynds, Sarah Rogers and Margaret Waterson. Tickets include refreshments. Children are welcome, but the show is geared toward adults, so children over 10 or 12 will enjoy it more than younger children will.

Benefit Dinner for Hometown Thanksgiving, 5-9 p.m., Cooper's Cave Ale Company, 2 Sagamore St., Glens Falls. The annual Hometown Thanksgiving meal, the Glens Falls-based nonprofit organization that serves approximately 1,200 to 1,500 people a free home-cooked Thanksgiving meal, costs several thousands of dollars each year. That's why we're asking for your help. We have been given a wonderful opportunity to have a benefit dinner at Cooper's Cave restaurant. 15 percent of all food and beverages purchased will be donated to Hometown Thanksgiving (not including tax, gratuities or any discounted offers by Cooper's Cave). A couple of important things: An RSVP is requested. Please contact Hometown Thanksgiving directly by Nov. 1 if you are interested in coming. Please do not reach out to the restaurant. It is very important you let us know, as we need to provide an approximate headcount so they have adequate staffing for that evening. You must mention to both the host and your server that you are there for the Hometown Thanksgiving benefit. It does not apply to takeout orders. You must dine in at the restaurant. If you are interested in dining with us, or if you have any questions, please call Meg at 518-232-8896, email hometownthanksgiving@gmail.com or leave a Facebook comment or use messenger to let her know how many will be attending. Thank you for all your support. We look forward to a wonderful night at Cooper's Cave.
