TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Residents in Tifton are taking a greater role in their community theatre. 

The Tift Theatre is producing one of its last plays under the non-community theatre model. 

On Monday night, the cast had their final rehearsal for the Addams Family Musical which is set to open on June 23.  

Haygan Muse is excited about her role as Wednesday. 

"I'm actually fitting in pretty well and it's way new to work with an older cast and to portray an older character because she's 40 years older than me," said Muse.

At the end of summer, from July 28 through July 30, a kids camp will be producing a Shrek musical. 

Starting next season, residents will be allowed to vote on the upcoming show productions.
