Gomez Addams, Tenor (Bb2 – G4): An attractive man of Spanish descent, who adores his wife, takes great pride in his children, and is immensely proud to be an Addams; must have great comedic timing, move well, and strong vocals. Fencing skills a plus.
Morticia Addams, Alto/Mezzo Sop. (G3 – Bb5): Beautiful, easy comedic actress with a sexy, dry wit; feels her husband is hiding something from her and will use any tactic to lure the secret out; a strong dancer. Any Ethnicity.
Uncle Fester, Tenor (C3 – C5): Serves as the musical’s narrator, hugely enthusiastic and totally incorrigible; a vaudevillian, needs strong comedy and tenor vocals. Any Ethnicity.
Wednesday Addams, Strong pop voice with belt (A3 – E5), Ability to play 18 years old: Gothic, witty with a terrifically dry sense of humor; just wants her family to be “normal” for one night. Any Ethnicity.
Pugsley Addams, Strong high vocals (unchanged voice) Ability to play 12 years old: A charming, funny, husky boy who loves being tortured by his sister; he wants to ensure he won’t lose his sister to her new boyfriend. Any Ethnicity.
Grandma, Strong character vocals (G4 – F5) Ability to play a feisty 102 yr. old woman: Fun and quirky, but don’t mess with Grandma; comedic actress. Any Ethnicity.
Lurch, Bass (Eb2-E4): 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. Any Ethnicity.
Mal Beinecke, bari-tenor (C3-A4): 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. Any Ethnicity.
Alice Beinecke, soprano/high belt (Ab3- G#5): Mother of 19-year-old Lucas, mousy housewife who’s devoted to her family; she drinks a potion that causes her to let her hair down; very strong comedic singer/actress. Any Ethnicity.
Lucas Beinecke, Pop Tenor (C3-C5): Attractive young man; fell in love with Wednesday Addams and plans to marry her; struggles with the differences between his family and the Addams family. Any Ethnicity.
The Ancestors, SATB, Adults: Strong contemporary singer/dancers who sing and have a fun, quirky sensibility. Knowledge of tango and flamenco dancing a plus. All Ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
