Some deliciously dark, yet finger-clicking funny drama, from The Chocolate Theatre, can be tasted in Swindon this weekend.

The cult musical based on the antics of The Addams Family unfolds at Swindon’s Arts Centre in Devizes Road, Old Town from tonight until Saturday, December 1.

The Chocolate Candy Band, pictured, is the ultimate eight-piece rock ‘n’ roll band performing live for the musical theatre production.

In the last couple of years The Chocolate Theatre has tackled such shows as Priscilla Queen of the Desert (2017), High School Musical JR (2017), A Christmas Carol (2017) Disenchanted (2018) and The Wedding Singer (2018).

The Addams Family musical is based on the original story of a night when Wednesday’s new normal boyfriend comes to dinner, along with his parents. Every father’s nightmare is a dinner party with the boyfriend who would never be good enough for his daughter, but to entertain one who is normal!

Tickets to join the frightful fun are £17 from 01793 524481 or visit
