Fencing skills a plus. 

Morticia Addams, Alto/Mezzo Sop. (G3 – Bb5), 21+ 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), 21+: 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), 15+: 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.

Lurch, Bass (Eb2-E4) 21+: 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) 21+: 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), 21+: 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. (continued)
