Auditions for The Addams Family
If dressing up as a spooky character for Halloween is your thing, you might have the ultimate chance—by auditioning for the Aloha Theatre’s upcoming production of the Broadway musical “The Addams Family.” All roles are available, and auditions will be held at the theatre at 6:00 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday August 6 and 7, with a possible invitational callback audition at 6:00 on Wednesday August 8.
The Aloha Theatre continues its tradition of top-rate seasonal shows with this musical version of “The Addams Family,” by Andrew Lippa, Marshall Brickman, and Rick Elice. Characters in the show include the familiar Charles Addams classics: Morticia, Gomez, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley, and Lurch, as well as new outsiders Mal, Alice, and Lucas Beineke. In addition to named characters, an ensemble of at least ten singer/dancer/actors is also required, as The Ancestors, who are vital to the plot and appear in nearly every scene.
Scores and scripts are available for perusal at the Aloha Theatre office, please call or email the office in advance. Each person auditioning must prepare 16 bars, or about one minute, of a song. Sheet music will be available for songs from “The Addams Family,” and an accompanist will be provided. If a song from another source is chosen, the candidate must provide the accompanist with sheet music in the proper key. No a capella or karaoke-style auditions will be permitted. Candidates should also prepare a one-minute humorous monologue (memorization preferred), and anticipate learning a short movement routine in a group. Sturdy, closed toe shoes are required, no slippers. Candidates will be seen in small groups, in order of arrival. Attendance at one of the audition nights is sufficient; attending both nights is not necessary.
Aloha Theatre’s production of “The Addams Family” is directed by Jerry Tracy, with musical direction by Bernaldo Evangelista, vocal direction by Marinella Savarese, and choreography by Rexanne Ring. Rehearsals begin Monday, August 13, and will generally be conducted Monday through Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Specific time commitment varies, depending on the role. The show runs for three weekends, performing on Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons, October 12-28. While not all cast members will be required at every rehearsal, candidates must be available for the entire rehearsal schedule with a minimum number of conflicts and must commit to the entire performance run. The complete rehearsal and performance calendar is available on the theatre’s website, AlohaTheatre.com, and will also be posted at auditions. In addition to performers, support staff is also sought, including stage-hands, hair, makeup, and wardrobe helpers, seamstresses, builders, painters, concession workers, and ushers. Those interested in any of these volunteer positions are encouraged to attend auditions to fill out a registration form, or to reach out to email@example.com, 808- 322-9924.
