The Addams Family workshop
Wednesday and Lucas want to be together. Wednesday is a quirky and mysterious girl with a very unique family and Lucas is from very ordinary every day predictable family. The two try to make it happen with a little help and advice from their families in this hilarious show.

Fencing skills a plus.
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 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 Addams

Strong pop voice with belt (A3 – E5), Gothic look 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.

Bass (Eb2-E4) 25-50: A person 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.
