Addams Family auditions are May 13 & 14

Hamilton-Gibson Productions is holding auditions at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, May 13 and 14 for its summer musical, “The Addams Family.”
The auditions will be at the Warehouse Theatre on Central Avenue, next to the Native Bagel in Wellsboro. The characters range in age from 10 to adult in the show about this beloved and kooky family.

Artistic Director Thomas Putnam said, “Singing is required for all roles in this musical comedy. Actors do not have to have great voices, just good, strong ones.”

Lucas Beineke and Wednesday Addams are 19-year-olds in love. He sings pop tenor vocals and she, strong pop belt vocals.

Their parents, Gomez and Morticia Addams and Mal and Alice Beineke are in their 40s or 50s. Gomez adores his wife and is proud of his children. He loves being an Addams. Mal is a stuffy father and exasperated husband. The two men have tenor voices. A strong dancer with a dry wit and alto voice is needed to play Morticia, a sultry, attractive woman who is the strength of her family. Alice, a soprano, is a quirky female who often speaks in rhyme.

Wednesday’s brother, Puglsey Addams is 10 to 12 years old. His voice has not yet changed. A strong, husky boy, he loves being tortured by his sister and takes matters into his own hands with her new boyfriend.

An energetic, joyous, child-like presence, Uncle Fester is larger than life. He is a vaudeville style comedian who sings tenor.

Grandma is a feisty, quirky 102-year-old woman. She is fun but don’t mess with her. A person with strong, character vocals is needed for this role.

Lurch, the Addams family butler, is a tall man who knows it all, moves slowly and sings in a low bass voice.

The Addams Ancestors, an ensemble of five men and five women, form the chorus of singer-dancers.

The show dates are Friday through Sunday, July 17-19 and Friday and Saturday, July 24 and 25.
