Addams Family Director’s Note

Director’s Note
It is my pleasure to direct this
fun-filled musical for the second
time. I directed it the first time at
Cascade High School.
The characters are the same as
you might remember: Gomez,
Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley,
Lurch, Uncle Fester, and Granny.
This time around, the
unsuspecting Beinecke family has
been added including parents Mal
& Alice and son, Lucas.
The show is very reminiscent of
the original television series you
may have seen – it is still running
on a couple of the nostalgia cable
The plot revolves around
Wednesday who has fallen in love
with Lucas, a “normal” boy. A
dinner at the Addams House is
planned where the families will
meet for the first time.
Wednesday confides in her father
Gomez, that in fact, she and
Lucas are already engaged.
Gomez must hide the information
from his wife Morticia.
The dinner ensues with much
hilarity and fun for the audience.
Auditions will include singing (16
to 24 measures please), reading
from the script, and dancing.
Prospective cast members should
attend either audition date but
not both.
Callbacks may be necessary.
