Seeking possible future replacements for the following:
Caucasian man, 50s. He is a man in his prime, of Spanish descent and a wild Iberian passion. He adores his wife, takes great pride in his children, and, in the larger sense, in his family. He’s very much about what it means to be an Addams. His desire for Morticia is undimmed after 20 years of marriage, and it takes very little to fire up his lust, although it appears they haven’t tango’d in quite some time. Must have great comedic timing and a strong tenor voice. LEAD
Caucasian woman, 40-50s. She holds the balance of power in the family and often seems like the only emotionally mature member of the clan. She is beautiful and aristocratic, the real head of the family and the critical and moving force behind it. Morticia always sees the best in people; it somehow comes off as strength rather than naivete. She enjoys being the center of all the sexual energy in the room. The most horrible thing in the world to her, truly unsettling, would be admitting that one day, inevitably, she’ll be (choke!) a grandmother. Must be a great dancer who is funny and sings well, alto/mezzo soprano. LEAD
Caucasian man, 40s-50s. The narrator of the piece, Fester is child-like, hugely enthusiastic and totally incorrigible. A vaudevillian, needs strong comedy and tenor voice. PRINCIPAL
Seeking actress to play age 17. Character is a Caucasian girl. Wednesday is a romantic lead, a sexy, young version of Morticia. Needs a great pop/rock style singing voice (Think Avril Lavigne) and a witty, DRY sense of humor. PRINCIPAL
Caucasian woman, "Ancient" (50s – 70s). Good-natured, easily led. Very active for her age, she's like the ladies you see in Fairway, of indeterminate age, but you don't get in their way or they'll run you over. Character singer with strong humor. PRINCIPAL
Seeking actor to play age 12. Character is a Caucasian boy. Pugsley is plump, adorable and FUNNY....a smaller version of Gomez. His singing voice needs to be big and unchanged. Think Ethel Merman. PRINCIPAL
Caucasian man, "ageless". 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. Lurch sees everything, knows everything that goes on under the roof of The Addams Family Manse. Must have a TRUE low bass voice. PRINCIPAL
[COLONEL MAL BEINECKE]
Caucasian man, 45-50. Military man, a man who must be obeyed with little patience for his wife and son. Wants to be bigger than Trump, and he'll lie, cheat and steal for acre of swamp. Musical Theater Bari-tenor voice. PRINCIPAL
Caucasian woman, early 40s. She truly loves her husband and loves that he takes charge; removing any responsibility from her for making decisions. However, since he has become more distant, she has taken to drink. She has refocused her love to her only son, Lucas. Must be very funny and sing well. PRINCIPAL
Caucasian man, 19. A writer, he has conflicts with his father's close-minded ways. Fell in love with Wednesday at first sight. A classic co-dependent, Lucas feels good when everybody's happy. Needs to be a great pop/rock singer. PRINCIPAL
