Williamstown Musical Theatre Company Inc is proud to announce auditions for their November 2015 production of The Addams Family – A New Musical Comedy, which will be performed at the Williamstown Mechanics Institute from Friday 6th November to Saturday 21st November 2015. We are looking for a small, yet versatile and flexible cast of 20.

The Addams Family  features an original story, and it’s 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.
