About the project: The Addams Family is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare: 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.

Vocal Range: Bb2-G4. Suave Spaniard 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 strong mover/dancer. May be played by a Latine, Hispanic, or Afro-Latine actor.
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/dancer.
Vocal Range: A3-E5. To be played by an adult, age 18+. 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 her "strange" family with that of her new love and his "normal" family. Wednesday showcases compassion, a bit of stubbornness, and a strong will. She has an extremely strong pop/musical theater belt.
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.
To play 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.
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 storytelling abilities (think: facial expressions and sound). Lurch has a rich bass voice.
Vocal Range: C3-A4. The uptight 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.
Vocal Range: Ab3-G#5. Lucas' mother and Mal's wife, Alice is strongly devoted to her family. She presents herself as reserved and collected (even when speaking in rhyme), until she learns to unleash her wild side at dinner with the Addams. She is a strong comedic actress with a very strong belt.
Vocal Range: C3-C5. The hopeful romantic 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. Very strong pop/musical theater singer.
