The Addams Family
Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa, Book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice
Directed by Kristopher Pettey

DATES AND LOCATION:
Auditions for The Addams Family will be held Monday, April 6, and Tuesday, April 7 at 7 p.m., location TBD. You do not need to attend both nights of auditions.

Callbacks will be held Wednesday, April 8 if needed.

AUDITION DETAILS:
Auditions are limited to ages 16+

Auditioners need to prepare a song selection of a minimum of 32 measures, up to 1.5 minutes in length. There will be an accompanist on site and the ability to play from a CD, 3.5mm headphone jack, or blue tooth. There will also be some dancing but nothing overly complex. We just want to see movement.

SHOW SYNOPSIS:
In this original story, the macabre Addams family is put to the test when outsiders come to dinner, hurling Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandmama and Lurch headlong into a night that will change the family forever.

PERFORMANCES:
June 11-14 | 18-21 | 25-28
Thursday-Saturday shows start at 7:30 p.m. Sunday shows start at 2 p.m. Call for shows is generally 1.5-2 hours before show start time.

ROLES:
Gomez Addams (Tenor): A man who adores his wife, takes great pride in his children, and is immensely proud to be an Addams: Caught between his daughter and his wife he feels completely trapped and unable to make either happy, which is his greatest joy.

Morticia Addams (Alto/Mezzo Soprano): The real head of the family and the critical moving force behind it; Feels her husband is hiding something from her and will use any tactic to lure the secret out.

Uncle Fester (Tenor): Serves as the musical’s narrator; Child-like, hugely enthusiastic, and totally incorrigible.

Wednesday Addams (Soprano/ Mezzo Soprano): Gothic, witty with a terrifically dry sense of humor; just wants her family to be “normal” for one night to meet the parents of the boy she has fallen in love with.

Pugsley Addams (Tenor): A charming, funny boy who loves being tortured by his sister; he wants to ensure he won’t lose his sister to her new boyfriend so he takes matters into his own hands.

Grandma Addams (Soprano): Fun and quirky, but don’t mess with grandma.

Lurch (Bass): A man of very, very few words, often spoken at half speed; most of what he utters is long, plaintive groans, some tinged with irony or exasperation.

Mal Beinecke (Bari-tenor): Stuffy father of 19-year-old Lucas and exasperated husband of his rhyming wife, Alice; thinks the Addams’ are beyond strange and does not want to spend time having dinner with them, much less related.

Alice Beinecke (Soprano): Mother of 19-year-old Lucas, seemingly mousy housewife who’s devoted to her family so she puts aside her own desires; while at the Addams’ family dinner party, she drinks a potion that causes her to let her hair down and speak her truth.

Lucas Beinecke (Tenor): A young man that fell in love with Wednesday Addams and plans to marry her: experiences the youthful pain and drama of young love and struggles with the differences between his family and the Addams family.

Ancestors: A mix of men and women of all vocal ranges. Fun and quirky, once released, they are always around.
