YOUNG stars from Brierley Hill Musical Theatre Company will be starring in the West Midlands premiere of The Addams Family this week.

Members of the company's youth group have been rehearsing for the last five months to bring to life the brand new musical which only a handful of societies across the country have been given permission to perform.

Inspired by the hit 1991 comic Gothic horror movie - the show features Tom Dallaway, aged 20, as Gomez, Katelyn Laws, aged 16, as Morticia, and James Lawley, aged 20, as Uncle Fester.

Suitable for theatregoers of all ages, the production runs nightly from 7.30pm at Brierley Hill Civic Hall, Bank Street, Brierley Hill, from tonight (Thursday July 17) until Saturday July 19.

There's also a matinee show on Saturday starting at 2.30pm.

Tickets, priced £8, are available from the box office 0845 658 8095 or online at
