Wauconda High School Fall Musical

The Addams Family

It’s that time of year again- time to wake the Addams Family Ancestors for a night of deliciously dark reverie. This year, however, there is a new twist; young love is blooming in the Addams household. Addams has fallen in love with a “normal” boy- Lucas Beineke, and she begs her parents, Gomez and Morticia Addams, to give her “One Normal Night” when the families meet for dinner. Can Gomez keep secret from his wife and eternal love? Can the Beinekes handle the outrageously odd Addams Family?

As things begin to fall apart, Fester enlists the help of the Addams Family Ancestors to put things right. The result is a quirky, lovable, and touching evening of toe-tapping music and laughs that is sure to leave you wondering: Is your family normal? Does it really matter?

Come join us and be a part of our family!

Fresh off the national tour, The Addams Family Musical has only just been released for performance, and Wauconda High School is one of two Illinois High Schools that has been granted performance rights at this time.

This show is rated PG-13 for mild innuendo.

Wauconda Complaint Free Wednesday

November 26, 2014


 The Wauconda Complaint Free Community Initiative continues to be a resounding success, a success that deserves our continued best efforts. Greek philosopher Aristotle taught that "we are what we repeatedly do." With that in mind, the Village of Wauconda will join other cities across the United States in designating the day before Thanksgiving as Complaint Free Wednesday.


Complaining is the opposite of gratitude. Gratitude is giving thanks for what we have. 

Have a Happy Thanksgiving! 

Wauconda has partnered with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County to provide more recycling opportunities. The Wauconda Textile Recycling Bin was delivered on Friday, April 18th.  The bin is located at Public Works adjacent to the electronics recycling bin.  


It is estimated that nearly 85% of all clothing and textiles end up in landfills in the U.S. today. Textile and clothing waste is a significant problem in our country. It is estimated that anywhere from 5-10% of all waste that is sent to municipal landfills is comprised of textiles. Let's do our part to recycle these clothing items and save our landfill space.
