The Addams Family The Musical

By Marshall Brickman, Rick Elice, and Andrew Lippa

Directed by Rachel Thuermer

The weird and wonderful family comes to devilishly delightful life in THE ADDAMS FAMILY. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Drama Desk Award winner Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys), and Olivier Award-winning original directors and designers Phelim McDermott & Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter) with direction by four-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks.

THE ADDAMS 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. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Actors must prepare 16 bars of a Musical Theater Peice that showcases your strength. Ipod Dock & Piano will be provided. If needed, please provide your own accompanist.

Although not required at this audition, actors are encouraged to present a 1 minute or less prepared monologue that showcases your acting ability.

Auditions consist of singing with the music director, learning a dance sequence from the show, and reading from the script.

Actors will only be called when working on their scenes. Depending on the size of the role, some actors may rehearse more than 2 times a week.

Every effort will be made to assign actors to the cast rehearsing in their county, Sheboygan or Manitowoc, but it is likely that many actors may be asked to attend some rehearsals in both counties.
