The weird and wonderful family comes to devilishly delightful life in THE ADDAMS FAMILY. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Drama Desk Award winner Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys), and Olivier Award-winning original directors and designers Phelim McDermott & Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter) with direction by four-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks.

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, she 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 the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Carteret Community Theatre is hosting A Night on the Polar Express Nov. 25 and Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. and Nov. 27 at 3 p.m.
The night will bring the award winning classic to life starting with a viewing of the feature film, the Polar Express.  The experience will culminate in a transformation of the theatre into the North Pole complete with elves, candy canes, and milk and cookies.  The adventure ends with an appearance by Santa Claus, arriving to the sound of ringing silver bells, heard by all who believe.

Everyone who believes is invited aboard for this magical evening at CCT and all are encouraged to wear their pajamas. Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets cost $10.00 and are accompanied by a complimentary snack.


The Embers are widely considered a musical MARVEL and have laid the groundwork for what has become known as ‘Beach Music’ in the Carolinas, Virginia, the gulf coast region of North America and every beach in between. A true musical tradition with which many Americans have grown. The Embers consider the genre of Beach Music as “music with a memory” and have been creating lasting memories since its inception in 1958. Simply put – Heart and Soul, Rhythm and Blues, Feel Good Music.  This legendary Beach Music band sings new arrangements of classic Christmas tunes the whole family will love.  Tuesday, December 20. 7:30PM


One of country's most historically minded new traditionalists, Marty Stuart is also one of the most eclectic, moving between honky tonk, rockabilly, country-rock, traditional country, and bluegrass. He has also been one of the more flamboyant showmen, supporting his party-hearty image with a wardrobe of rhinestone-laden Nudie suits.

Friday, January 20 at 8PM.
