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 with book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, this musical brings to life our favorite ghoulish family.

The Addams Family, 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.

Character breakdown

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.

She has a strong belt.

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!

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.
