Avondale resident Mark Poppleton has a role in the national tour of the Broadway musical, The Addams Family! Poppleton plays Mal Beineke, the father of Wednesday Addam’s normal boyfriend, in the one-night show presented by the FSCJ Artist Series on Friday, May 2 at the Times-Union Center’s Moran Theater. “If your kids don’t know the Addams, this is a family-friendly chance to introduce them to one of your old favorites,” said the actor.

Poppleton has several shows and independent films under his belt, including roles in My Fair Lady and White Christmas at the Alhambra.

“I think that any time you can see a live show – whether a musical, a play, a concert – you treat yourself by going to see it,” Poppleton said. “I have been doing theater for so much of my life, and it still amazes me how many people have never been to the theater. But, after they have seen a live performance, they can’t wait to see another. There is something wonderful that you can’t describe about the incomparable energy of a live performance!”
