ABOUT THE SHOW
Morticia and Gomez Addams want to continue living amongst death, pain and suffering, the way they always have. But then there is a change in plans. Their eldest child, Wednesday, has fallen in love with a strange boy, Lucas Beineke. To the Addams, strange is normal. Happy is Sad. The Addams believe life revolves around death. To Morticia and Gomez’s own complexity, they invite Wednesday’s new boyfriend’s family to their home. Many strange things happen the night that the Beinekes come to visit.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

  • Gomez (Male, Baritone, 45-55, lead) – A passionate Latin lover who is still madly in love with his wife, Morticia, after many years of marriage. He has Spanish blood and speaks with an accent. He is torn between never keeping a secret from his wife and honoring his word to his daughter to keep her engagement under wraps.
  • Morticia (Female, Alto, 35-45, lead) – A fairly tall, fairly thin woman with a pasty white complexion (or could be with make-up). She is the true leader of the household. She is mysterious which is how she controls Gomez. She has an even disposition, muted and witty.
  • Wednesday (Female, Soprano, early 20’s, lead) – The daughter. Very much like her mother. She has a mature personality, with a deadpan wit and a morbid fascination in trying to do physical harm to her brother and others.
  • Lucas (Male, Baritone, 20’s) – Wednesday’s boyfriend. A somewhat strange boy who would probably fit right in with the Addams.
  • Uncle Fester (Male, Tenor, 30’s-50’s) – Gomez’s brother. Barrel-shaped and “bald”. Very white skin and sunken dark eyes (with make-up). Very outgoing personality, with a devilish grin.
  • Pugsley (Male, Tenor, 8-14) – Wednesday’s little brother. Upset because he is going to lose his big sister when she gets married.
  • Alice (Female, Soprano, 40’s-50’s) – Lucas’s mother. A woman with many hidden passions. She loves to rhyme and longs for her husband to be the way he was.
  • Mal (Male, Tenor, 40’s-50’s) – Lucas’s father. A successful straight-laced Ohio business man who has forgotten how to have fun.
  • Grandma (Female, Belt, 50’s-60’s) – Short, thin woman who is a witch that deals with lots of potions, hexes and spells.
  • Lurch (Male, Bass-Baritone, 20’s-30’s) – Tall, thin man who speaks in unintelligible groaning. The butler.
  • The Ancestors – 3-5 Men & Women of various ages who portray ghosts on the Addams estate. They play an essential part in this musical and appear throughout. Must be able to sing, dance and act.
