The Addams Family

Free Summer Show!
July 14-17 & 21-23

IMPORTANT MESSAGE:
It is with great sadness we announce both weekends of The Addams Family have been cancelled.

The Addams Family, a new musical, is fun for the entire family and will feature performers of all ages with a children’s ensemble. Based on characters created by Charles Addams, this musical with a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa brings to life our favorite ghoulish family.

The Addams Family is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. The Addams face change as they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Leawood Stage company is thrilled to welcome back Kevin Bogan as Director for another summer production. Kevin directed Annie Get Your GunMy Fair Lady, and Promises, Promises. He performed in Sunday in the Park with George and has music directed several additional shows for Leawood Stage Company.

Character breakdown

Gomez Addams
Stage Age: 35-55
Vocal Range: Bb2 – G4
A suave man of Spanish descent who adores his wife and children and takes immense pride in being an Addams. Gomez finds himself trapped between his daughter and his wife, being forced to hide Wednesday’s big secret from Morticia. He has great comedic timing and is a good dancer. Spanish accent is a plus!

Morticia Addams
Stage Age 35-55
Vocal Range: G3 – Bb5
The beautiful, leggy and mysterious head of the Addams family who believes strongly in family tradition. Morticia is unnerved thinking that Gomez is hiding something from her. She is confident and sexy with a side of dry wit. She is a strong mover (tango skills a plus!)

Wednesday Addams
Stage Age: 18 – 22
Vocal Range; A3 – E5
Gothic big sister Wednesday who has her father’s heart and her mother’s sensibility falls in love with a “normal” boy who she brings home to meet the family. Wednesday is trying to balance her relationships with “strange” family with that of her new love and his “normal” family. Wednesday showcases compassion, a bit of stubbornness and strong will. She has a strong belt.

Pugsley Addams
Stage Age 10 – 13
Vocal Range: A3 – F5
The youngest of the Addams Family, Pugsley loves to be tortured by his big sister. He is lost trying to figure out his place now that she has a new boyfriend and family dynamics are changing. Pugsley is charming and funny, ideally with an unchanged singing voice.

Uncle Fester
Stage Age: 30-50
Vocal Range; C3 – G4 (optional C5) Serving as the narrator of the show, Uncle Fester is lovable, childish, enthusiastic and highly incorrigible. Fester has great comedic timing and a tenor voice. Ukulele skills a plus!

Grandma
Stage Age: 102
Vocal Range: G4 – F5 Fun, quirky and feisty, Grandma always has a trick up her sleeve. Grandma is wise, wacky and sometimes a bit crass. She has great comedic timing and physicality.

Lurch
Stage Age: 25 – 50
Vocal Range: Eb2 – E4
A man of few words, Lurch is the Addams Family butler. His unmistakable commanding presence is accented by grunts, moans and deliberate movement. Must have great non-verbal story-telling abilities (think: facial expressions and sound). Lurch has a rich bass voice.

Lucas Beinecke
Stage Age : 18 – 22
Vocal Range: C3 – C5
The hopeful romantic and son of Alice & Mal, Lucas has fallen in love with Wednesday and intends to marry her. He is optimistic and hopeful yet struggles to find the balance between his ‘normal’ family and the macabre Addams. Strong singer.

Mal Beinecke 
Stage Age 35 – 55
Vocal Range: C3 – A4
The uptight and father of Lucas and cold-shouldered husband to Alice, cynical Mal meets the Addams with skepticism. He finds the Addams to be too bizarre for his liking and cannot fathom being related to them.

Alice Beineckee
Stage Age 35 – 55
Vocal Range: C3 – A4
The uptight and father of Lucas and cold-shouldered husband to Alice, cynical Mal meets the Addams with skepticism. He finds the Addams to be too bizarre for his liking and cannot fathom being related to them.
