She 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

Characters:

Gomez Addams

  • Ethan Bopp
The father of the Addams family. Gomez takes great pride in his family and revels in all it means to be an "Addams." He struggles with having to keep his daughter's secret from his wife, whom he adores more than death. He is pulled in different directions in order to appease them both. Husband to Morticia, a crafty schemer, but also a jolly man in his own way... though sometimes misguided... sentimental and often puckish - optimistic, he has full enthusiasm for his dreadful plots... is sometimes seen in a rather formal dressing gown.

Morticia Addams

  • Larkyn Foster
Morticia is the real 'head' of the Addams family, the matriarch. She is concerned her husband is hiding something, and will use all her wiles and tactics to lure his secret out. She is glamorous; witty... and given to low-keyed rhapsodies about her garden of deadly nightshade, henbane, and dwarf's hair. Although it may seem that Gomez has the most say in family dealings, Morticia’s influence over him proves that she’s really the one in charge. Elegant and gorgeous, Morticia sees only the good in everyone, and comes off as wiser for doing so. Her cool head and dry sense of humor help temper Gomez, and bring tangibility to her fear of growing old.

Uncle Fester

  • Dominic DeWitt
The narrator of the show, Uncle Fester serves as the musical's narrator. He is larger than life, an energetic, joyous, child-like presence. A vaudeville style comedian. Uncle Fester is incorrigible and except for the good nature of the family and the ignorance of the police, would ordinarily be under lock and key... he likes to fish, but usually employs dynamite... he keeps falcons on the roof which he uses for hunting... his one costume, summer and winter is a black great coat with an enormous collar… a total character.

Wednesday Addams

  • Ivy Buffalo
Gothic but 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.

Pugsley Addams

  • Sylas Smith
Wednesday’s little brother, Pugsley is a danger-seeking, charming, funny, boy - who loves being tortured by his sister. Wednesday’s relationship with Lucas has left Pugsley with separation anxiety. He wants to ensure he won’t lose Wednesday to her new boyfriend so he takes matters into his own hands. An energetic monster of a boy... and a dedicated troublemaker.

Grandma

  • Maya Barnes
A feisty 102 yr. old woman: Fun and quirky, but don’t mess with Grandma.

Lurch

  • Adam Gillespie
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.

Mal Beinecke

  • Calvin Wright
Mal is Lucas’ stuffy father and an exasperated husband to his rhyming wife, Alice. A typical conservative suburban father that’s cynical of life and especially the Addams family. Always looking out for his family. Has difficulty accepting his reality and pretends to be better than others. At one time he was a follower of The Grateful Dead but has lost that side of himself.

Alice Beinecke

  • Sydney Johnson
Mother of 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.

Lucas Beinecke

  • Reid Foster
A hopeful romantic and the son of Mal and Alice Beineke, Lucas is the 'average' young man who has fallen in love with Wednesday Addams and plans to marry her. The epitome of the love- torn teenager, Lucas experiences the youthful pain and drama of young love and struggles with the differences between his family and the Addams family. He writes poetry and appears to be a traditionalist, but he harbors an unexpected crazy and dark side, and appreciates the macabre… which is why he gets along so well with the Addamses.

The Ancestors

  • Acadia Kotov
  • Charlotte Karnes
  • Eliana Bopp
  • Elizabeth DeWitt
  • Grace Turner
  • James Turner
  • Natalia Thies
  • Reese Hedgepeth
  • Scarlett Williams
  • Tenley Williams
All chorus members will be assigned an Addams Family Ancestor "character" and therefore have their own cameo character to play. The ensemble has a very important role in The Addams Family. As descendants of the Addams lineage from various eras and locales, the Addams ancestors act as a backup chorus for multiple scenes and numbers.
