The Addams Family/ 8 w, 10 m
In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and nightmares are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, none more frightening than this…Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up.
The Addams Family Character Breakdown and Descriptions
Morticia Addams : Alto/Mezzo Sop. (G3 – Bb5) (Pre-Cast) Looking for understudy only.
Gomez Addams : Tenor (Bb2 – G4), 35-55: An attractive man of Spanish descent, 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; must have great comedic timing, move well, and strong vocals. Fencing skills a plus.
Uncle Fester : Tenor (C3 – C5), 30-50: Serves as the musical’s narrator; rotund and child-like, hugely enthusiastic and totally incorrigible; a vaudevillian, needs strong comedy and tenor vocals.
Wednesday Addams : Strong pop voice with belt (A3 – E5), 18-25 to play 18: Gothic in a sexy way, 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’s fallen in love with; strong pop belt vocals.
Pugsley Addams : Strong high vocals (unchanged voice) (Pre-cast)
Grandma Addams : Strong character vocals (G4 – F5) 35+ to play a feisty 102 yr. old woman: Fun and quirky, capable of a comedic physical presence; comedic actress with strong character vocals.
Lurch : Bass (Eb2-E4) 25-50: Seeking actors at least 6’1 – the taller the better; 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; must have true low bass vocals.
Mal Beineke : bari-tenor (C3-A4) 35-50: Stuffy father of 19-year-old Lucas and exasperated husband to his rhyming wife, Alice; thinks the Addams’ are beyond strange and does not want to spend time having dinner with them, much less be related.
Alice Beineke : soprano/high belt (Ab3- G#5), 35-45: 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; very strong comedic singer/actress.
Lucas Beineke : Pop Tenor (C3-C5), 18-25 to play 19: Attractive, in shape young man; 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.
The Ancestors : SATB, (casting 5 Men & 5 Women) 20 and older: Strong contemporary singers/dancers/physical movers. Must be able to hold tight harmonies.
