At heart, we’re all Wednesday Addams.

Carrie Hope Fletcher is having an absolute belter of a year. With book publishing, a successful YouTube channel and a further run with her sterling career on the West end stage, is there anything else for Carrie to do in 2016?! Well, she knocked all our expectations out of the park last week when she announced that she would be playing a character we all hold incredibly close to our heart…

Starting in October 2017, Carrie Hope Fletcher will be playing Wednesday Addams alongside Samantha Womack (EastEnders) and Less Dennis (Coronation Street) in the new imagining of the iconic Addams Family!

From Broadway World, here’s an official description of Carrie Hope Fletcher’s upcoming show;

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and has a shocking secret that only Gomez knows; she’s fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family! 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 the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.”
