Our third season!

Auditions for The Addams Family: The Musical will take place  Saturday, March 7, 10am-3pm @ First Universalist Parish Hall, Derby Line, VT
Audition reservations: borderlineplayers@outlook.com 


Performances will be  August 7-8-9 & 14-15-16, 2020 


In the kooky world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to  feel pain is to feel joy. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to  deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the  spookiest nightmare faced by every family: the kids are growing up.  Gomez and Morticia’s dark, macabre daughter Wednesday is now a young  woman who has fallen for a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable  family! In one fateful, hilarious night, the Addams family must face the  one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid: change! 


Directed by Sarah Comtois
Music Direction by Mark Violette  


ROLES

Wednesday Addams
Female / Lead
Strong pop voice, Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano
Gothic in a sexy way, witty with a terrifically dry sense of humor;  just wants her family to be “normal” for one night to meet the parents  of the boy she’s fallen in love with; strong pop belt vocals. Preferably  seeking actresses 5’4 & under for this role. 


Morticia Addams
Female / Lead
Mezzo-Soprano, Alto
Beautiful, leggy, the real head of the family and the critical and  moving force behind it; 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.


Gomez Addams
Male / Lead
Baritone, Bass, Tenor
An attractive man of Spanish descent, who adores his wife, takes great  pride in his children, and is immensely proud to be an Addams; caught  between his daughter and his wife he feels completely trapped and unable  to make either happy, which is his greatest joy; must have great  comedic timing, move well, and strong vocals. Fencing skills a plus.


Alice Beineke
Female / Supporting
Soprano/High Belt
Mother of 19-year-old Lucas, seeming-ly mousy housewife who’s devoted  to her family so she puts aside her own desires; while at the Addams’  family dinner party, she drinks a potion that causes her to let her hair  down and speak her truth; very strong comedic singer/actress.


Uncle Fester Addams
Male / Supporting
Tenor, Baritone
Serves as the musical’s narrator; rotund and child-like, hugely  enthusiastic and totally incorrigible; a vaudevillian, needs strong  comedy and tenor vocals.

Pugsley Addams


Male or Female Actor (Male Role) / Supporting
Strong high vocals (unchanged voice), Tenor
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 so he  takes matters into his own hands; strong, high vocals. Voice not yet  changed. 5’ max height requirement.


Mal Beineke
Male / Supporting
Tenor, Bari-Tenor
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.


Lucas Beineke
Male / Supporting
Tenor, Baritone
Attractive, in shape young man; fell in love with Wednesday Addams and  plans to marry her; experiences the youthful pain and drama of young  love and struggles with the differences between his family and the  Addams family.


Grandma Addams
Female / Featured
Soprano
Fun and quirky, but don’t mess with this feisty 102-year old woman; comedic actress with strong character vocals.


Lurch
Male / Featured
Bass
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.


Ancestors
Either Gender / Ensemble
Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass
Strong contemporary singer/dancers who sing and have a fun, quirky  sensibility. Knowledge of tango and flamenco dancing a plus. Must be  able to hold tight harmonies and portray recognizable historical  archetypes.
