The Addams Family

Teen Show 2017

Directed by Lindsay Franklin

Welcome to the Addams family mansion, a place where dreariness, darkness, and gloom reside and their prideful owners host Wednesday's boyfriend and his family for dinner. When Wednesday reveals a secret to Gomez, how will he choose between being true to his insistent daughter or his demanding wife? Join us to see what happens when this iconic family is forced to act "normal" for a night!

Character Descriptions:

Gomez Addams - The Spanish accented patriarch of the family who is torn between keeping a secret for his daughter and keeping one from his wife. Baritone/Bass (B flat to G sharp)

Morticia Addams - The matriarch of the family. She is strong, dark, and sensual with a dry sense of humor. She does not like to be kept in the dark (ironically). Mezzo-Soprano/Alto (G sharp to B flat)

Uncle Fester - Quirky, joyful, and good natured. He tries to use the ancestors to help with the family dinner. Tenor/Baritone (C sharp to C sharp)

Grandma - Also quirky - a comedic role. Soprano (G sharp to F sharp)

Wednesday Addams - "The princess of darkness", as she is often called, falls in love with a "vanilla" young man and tries to get her family to act normal for just one night and approve of Lucas. She is witty and likable. Soprano/Mezzo-Soprano (A sharp to E sharp)

Pugsley Addams - Wednesday's little brother who loves to be tortured and feels left out as Wednesday is moving on. He attempts to foil her plans at dinner. Tenor (A sharp to F sharp)

Lurch - Is Lurch. He is slow and doesn't actually speak in understandable English. Bass (E flat to E sharp)

Mal Beineke - Is Lucus's buttoned-up, former musician father who now has a strained relationship with his wife because they have both lost themselves along the way. Tenor (C sharp to A sharp)

Alice Beineke - Is Lucus's devoted mother. She appears to be very preppy and conservative, but with a little help from Pugsley-she lets loose! Soprano (A flat to G sharp)

Lucas Beineke - An average guy who is madly in love with Wednesday and just wants the night to go off without a hitch so that he can marry her. Tenor/Baritone (C sharp to C sharp)

The Addams Ancestors (Ensemble) - dead people who sing and dance. A very active ensemble of ghosts!
