Auditions: The Addams Family Musical
Artists Civic Theatre and Studio will hold auditions for The Addams Family Musical! on Saturday, May 27th at 6:40 p.m. and Sunday May 28th at 3:00 p.m. at the One Reid Street Theatre on the corner of Reid and South Railroad Avenue.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday 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. Book by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa..
