Sterling Community Theatre announces auditions for The Addams Family!


Based on the bizarre and beloved characters created by Charles Addams, this original story finds the famously macabre Addams Family put to the test when Wednesday, known for her love of darkness, falls in love with a sweet young man from a seemingly respectable and ordinary family. Forced to host these outsiders for a dinner party, the evening soon goes devilishly awry, testing the bonds of family, love, and unholy matrimony.

Gomez Addams:  The loving and charismatic father of the Addams family. He is a suave man of Spanish descent who adores his wife and children and takes immense pride in his heritage and really hates to lie.


Morticia Addams: The confident and mysterious Addams family matriarch. She loves her family and believes strongly in family traditions and having complete and total honesty.


Wednesday Addams: The eldest Addams child, who has her father’s heart and her mother’s sensibility. The love she feels for her boyfriend, Lucas,  pushes her to evaluate what is “strange” and what is “normal.” (Seeking actors 17 to 20 for this role.)

Alice Beineke: The ever poetic mother to Lucas and wife of Mal. She puts on a façade of someone who is reserved but is secretly full of passion and desire.


Mal Beineke: The uptight father to Lucas and husband of Alice. His cynicism and conservative nature is revealed to be a product of his own expectations of what he believes it means to be a father and husband.


Lucas Beineke: The hopeful romantic son of Alice & Mal and new boyfriend of Wednesday. His optimism and  hopefulness keep him fighting for who he loves despite all the obstacles they encounter. (Seeking actors 17 to 20 for this role.)


Uncle Fester: The loveable and highly incorrigible narrator of the show, Fester’s love for his family is only matched by his love for the moon.


Grandma: The 102 year old feisty mother (maybe?) of Gomez who values a good joke just as much as she does a good potion.


Lurch: The undead family butler and a man of few words with an unmistakable commanding presence.
