AUDITIONS FOR ADDAMS FAMILY
The Un-Common Theatre Company is thrilled to announce auditions for our 2022 Spring Production of The Addams Family, a magnificently macabre tale that explores the darkly delirious world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and, of course, Lurch. The weird and wonderful family comes to spooky and spectacular life in a story that is 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 weren’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.
Come join the family. We’ll leave the lights off for you.

In our ongoing effort to reduce COVID-19 transmission and to keep everyone as safe as possible, all participants age 12 and over will be required to be fully vaccinated and show proof of such at the audition check-in table. No student, age 12 and over, will be permitted to audition without it. In addition, we will be requiring that everyone in the audition building (auditioners and those accompanying them) to wear a mask. Auditioners will be able to remove their masks when instructed (if comfortable) during the actual audition. At this time we anticipate masking during rehearsals, but will continually monitor guidance from the CDC and the state of Massachusetts and update our policies as needed.
Please prepare 16-32 bars from a song in the style of the show but not a song from the show. Please bring sheet music in the key in which you are singing for our piano accompanist. Please, no a cappela.
Rehearsals are scheduled on Sunday afternoons from 2:00-5:00 PM and Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30-9:00 PM in Mansfield or Foxboro. Not all cast members will be required to be at all rehearsals. A rehearsal schedule will be made once the show is cast. Extra nights may be added as the show nears production week. Cast members are allowed 3 absences only, none the two weeks prior to the show.
The production will take place April 30-May 1, 2022 at the Marilyn Rodman Performing Arts Center in Foxboro.
