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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
