ABOUT THE SHOW:
The Addams Family is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, it features an original story of every father’s nightmare: a daughter in love. Wednesday, the ultimate princess of darkness, has not only grown up, but confides in her father that she has fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met and begs him not to tell her mother. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, 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 seemingly normal parents.
MORTICIA ADDAMS – To play age 35-55. Vocal Range: G3 – Bb4. The beautiful and mysterious matriarch of the Addams family who believes strongly in family tradition. Morticia is confident and sexy with a side of dry wit. Strong mover (tango skills a plus).
GOMEZ ADDAMS – To play age 35-55, Vocal Range: Bb2 – G4. A suave man who adores his wife and children and takes immense pride in being an Addams. Gomez has great comedic timing, strong improvisational skills, and is a strong dancer/mover.
WEDNESDAY ADDAMS – To play age 18-20. Vocal Range: A3 – F5. Iconic Goth big sister, Wednesday, leads with a dark cloud exterior, but deep down she has her father’s heart and her mother’s sensibility. Wednesday falls in love with a “normal” boy who she brings home to meet the family, and the feelings threaten every reality she’s known up til now. Strong belter with a hilariously dark sense of humor.
PUGSLEY ADDAMS – To play a teenager, Vocal Range: A3 – F#5. The youngest of the Addams Family, Pugsley loves to be tortured by their big sister. Pugsley is charming and funny.
UNCLE FESTER – To play age 30-60, Vocal Range; C3 – G4 full voice tenor, and up to C5 in head voice. Uncle Fester is lovable, childish, enthusiastic and highly incorrigible. He has great comedic timing. (Ukulele skills a plus)
GRANDMA – Plays anywhere between age 60-102, Vocal Range: G4 – F#5. Fun, quirky and feisty, Grandma always has a trick up her sleeve. Grandma is wise, wacky and sometimes a bit crass. She has great comedic timing and physicality.
LURCH – To play 25–50, Vocal Range: Eb2 – E4 (a True Bass). Lurch is the Addams Family butler. A man of few words, his unmistakable commanding presence is accented by grunts, moans and deliberate movement. Must have great non-verbal story-telling abilities. (6’2” height minimum)
MAL BEINECKE – To play age 35-55, Vocal Range: C3 – A4. The uptight father of Lucas and cold-shouldered husband to Alice, cynical Mal meets the Addams with skepticism. He finds the Addams to be too bizarre for his liking and cannot fathom being related to them.
ALICE BEINECKE – To play age 35-55, Vocal Range: Ab3 – G#5. Lucas’s mother and Mal’s wife, Alice is strongly devoted to her family. She presents herself as reserved and collected (even when speaking in rhyme) until she learns to unleash her wild side at dinner with the Addams. Strong comedic actress.
LUCAS BEINECKE – To play age 18-20. Vocal Range: C3 – C5. The hopeful romantic and son of Alice & Mal, Lucas has fallen in love with Wednesday and intends to marry her. He is optimistic and hopeful yet struggles to find the balance between his ‘normal’ family and the macabre Addams Family.
THE ANCESTORS – To play age 18+, All Vocal Ranges. The Addams ancestors from various eras serve as the chorus for the show and help bring the story to life. They will be featured both singing and dancing throughout the entire show (once relapsed from the family crypt!). Seeking actors with both vocals and dancing abilities. Some roles will double as swings/ covers for lead roles.
