The Auburn Community Players is producing Addams Family The Comedy Musical. We are looking for local actors to be a part of our fall production.
All roles are open and actors of all ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
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, Wednesday 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.
Rehearsals begin August 27th
Shows October 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13 & 14.

The Addams Family Character Descriptions (all ages are approximate)
Gomez Addams, Tenor (Bb2 – G4), 35-55: 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.
Morticia Addams, Alto/Mezzo Sop. (G3 – Bb5), 35-50: 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.
Uncle Fester, Tenor (C3 – C5), 30-50: Serves as the musical’s narrator; rotund and child-like, hugely enthusiastic and totally incorrigible; a vaudevillian, needs strong comedy and tenor vocals.
Wednesday Addams, Strong pop voice with belt (A3 – E5), 18-25 to play 18: 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.
Pugsley Addams, Strong high vocals (unchanged voice) 12-13 to play 12: 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.

Lurch, Bass (Eb2-E4) 25-50: 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.
Mal Beinecke, bari-tenor (C3-A4) 40-55: 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.
Alice Beinecke, soprano/high belt (Ab3- G#5), 40-50: Mother of 19-year-old Lucas, seemingly 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.
Lucas Beinecke, Pop Tenor (C3-C5), 18-25 to play 19: 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.
