YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan — A theater troupe hopes to get folks into the Halloween spirit with a snap of their fingers during free performances of “The Addams Family” musical at the home of U.S. Forces Japan in western Tokyo.

Sponsored by the 374th Force Support Squadron, the Vivace Performing Arts production features a cast and crew of servicemembers, Defense Department civilians and dependents, including 15-year-old Kathryn Codiamat. She stars as Wednesday Addams, whose love for a respectable boy from Ohio causes all kinds of grief for her macabre family.

Performances are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday at Yokota’s Taiyo Community Center.
