The Addams Family
May 27 @ 7:00 pm – May 29 @ 7:00 pm
The Addams Family

The Addams Family is a musical comedy containing flecks of ghoulish humour, sprinkled with that allure of  falling in love and a mixture of magical madness!  Laughter echoes into the darkest corners and you will leave full of excitement for that stroke of 12 and a howling wolf across the midnight moon.

Take a trip with Wendy Samantha Productions at The Chapel, at Chapel Off Chapel as they journey into the macabre, deep in Central Park surrounded by flying arrows, potions, torture devices, and explosions. Sink your feet into unknown grounds and be prepared for the unexpected, the uninvited, and the undead! Shows commence on the gong at 7pm Thursday 27th May, Friday 28th May and Saturday 29th May.

The Addams Family are hosting a special dinner for one night only, and they are looking forward to having some fresh meat on the table.  Enter the Beineke family full of colour, happiness and Hallmark greetings.  So what happens when boy meets girl and love blossoms under a whacky rooftop that is set to grow wings and take off? How do two households from completely different worlds make it through one normal storm stricken night together?  What is, normal?

“Normal is an illusion.  What is normal for the spider, is a calamity for the fly” – Morticia


With music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, The Addams Family cartoon characters created by Charles Addams, are brought to life in this wonderfully sorceress event.

SYNOPSIS

In a farmhouse at the edge of Salisbury Plain a family is falling apart. Stephen can’t afford to put his mother into care. Arthur can’t afford to stop working and look after his wife. When a young stranger moves in to care for Edie as her mind unravels, the family is forced to ask: Are we living the way we wanted?
VISITORS is a sharply funny love story that takes a haunting, beautiful look at the way our lives slip past us.

 

CAST

Edie – late 60s – early 70s. A farmer’s wife who has early signs of dementia. She can recall the past but more and more forgets the present. Despite that she can still be quite perceptive.

 

Arthur – Edie’s husband late 60s – early 70s. Reticent but wants to do the right thing. Sometimes cantankerous, he gives the appearance of being robust but is prone to falling down.

 

Stephen – their son, in his early 40s. He did not follow in his father’s footsteps on the farm, rather leaving to work in the insurance business. Somewhat estranged from his family, he is rather discontented and frustrated with life.

 

Kate – a university graduate in her 20s. Hired by Stephen to look after his parents she is drifting as she tries to decide what to do with her life. She is strong and empathetic.

 

 

Accents: Preferably soft ‘west country’ accents for Edie and Arthur. Less so for Stephen. Kate can be any English accent.

 

No roles have been pre-cast.

It is necessary that you are familiar with the play when you come to the auditions.
