The Riverhead Middle School Blue Masques brought the famous “creepy and kooky” clan to life during musical performances of “The Addams Family” on March 16 and 17.

The cast of talented student actors and actresses, under the direction of director Laura Nitti, amused audiences as they displayed their acting, singing and dancing skills on the middle school stage. Prior to the performances, they worked for several weeks memorizing lines, choreographing dance moves and perfecting their vocals.  

“These students made great strides in such a short time and demonstrated extraordinary teamwork, initiative, discipline and perseverance. I was so impressed,” said Lauren Lewonka, director of fine arts.
