'The Addams Family Musical' auditions set

The Alexandria Area Arts Association (AAAA) will hold open auditions for its fall musical, The Addams Family Musical. Monday, August 11 and Tuesday, August 12 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the AAAA Theatre at 618 Broadway Street.

The Addams Family Musical is based on the Charles Addams characters. The Addams Family features every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has fallen in love with a young man from a respectable family, a man her parents have never met.

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 family when they host a dinner for Wednesday’s boyfriend and his parents.

Most parts are ages 18-65 (with the exception of Pugsley, who is younger, and Grandmama, who is older).

Auditions include 12 measures of a prepared musical theater song (accompanist provided) and a one-minute comedic monologue. Interested parties only need to attend one audition. Folks unable to attend the scheduled auditions may call (320) 762-8300 to set up an alternative time.

Rehearsals begin September 2, and the production will run Friday, October 24 through Sunday, November 2. The production is directed by Benjamin Klipfel.
