Addams Family ROLES AND RANGES

Please note: the ages listed below are approximated and are subject to the people who are auditioning. Other than the role of Pugsley, there are no roles for children.

Gomez Addams, Tenor (Bb2 – G4), 30-55: An attractive man of Spanish descent, who adores
his wife, takes great pride in his children, and is immensely proud to be an Addams; caught
between his daughter and his wife he feels completely trapped and unable to make either happy,
which is his greatest joy; must have great comedic timing, move well, and strong vocals.

Morticia Addams, Alto/Mezzo Sop. (G3 – Bb5), 30-50: 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.

Uncle Fester, Tenor (C3 – C5), 30-50: 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), 18-25 to play 18: 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.

Pugsley Addams, Strong high vocals (unchanged voice) 11-13 to play 12: A charming, funny,
husky boy who loves being tortured by his sister; he wants to ensure he won’t lose his sister to her
new boyfriend so he takes matters into his own hands; strong, high vocals. Voice not yet changed.

Grandma, Strong character vocals (G4 – F5) 30+ to play a feisty 102 yr. old woman: Fun and
quirky, but don’t mess with Grandma; comedic actress with strong character vocals.

Lurch, Bass (Eb2-E4) 20-50: Seeking actors at least 6’1 – 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) 40-55: 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), 40-50: 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.

Lucas Beinecke, Pop Tenor (C3-C5), 18-25 to play 19: Attractive, in shape young man; fell in
love with Wednesday Addams and plans to marry her; experiences the youthful pain and drama
of young love and struggles with the differences between his family and the Addams family.

The Ancestors, SATB, 20 and older: Strong contemporary singer/dancers who sing and have a
fun, quirky sensibility. Knowledge of tango and flamenco dancing a plus. Must be able to hold
tight harmonies and portray recognizable historical archetypes.
