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

 

channels.

 

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.
