       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 a fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.

About Caterpillar Employees Mixed Chorus
 The Caterpillar Employees Mixed Chorus was organized on October 29, 1941. The club's first appearance was at a Christmas program in the East Peoria HH Theatre. The Chorus was founded as a musical outlet for employees, retirees, and dependents to foster and promote the love of music for the enjoyment of employees and their families. Caterpillar Inc. has sponsored the Employees Mixed Chorus for the past 75 years, making it the oldest employee activity of its kind in the world. Every fall the Chorus presents a major musical production with additional Chorus musical activities including a Spring Variety Show performed at local retirement communities.
