THE ADDAMS FAMILY AUDITION INFORMATION!


PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY TO PREPARE FOR YOUR AUDITION


ABOUT THE ADDAMS FAMILY - SCHOOL EDITION

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.

THE ADDAMS FAMILY School Edition has been adapted from the original Off-Broadway Production. The School Edition has been carefully edited  to make the show more producible for high school groups.
