She is confident with a side of dry wit. Feels her husband is hiding something from her and will use any tactic to lure the secret out.

Wednesday Addams Big sister Wednesday who has her father’s heart and her mother’s sensibility and dry wit falls in love with a “normal” boy who she brings home to meet the family. Wednesday is trying to balance her relationships with her “strange” family with that of her new love and his “normal” family. Wednesday showcases compassion, a bit of stubbornness and strong will.

Pugsley Addams The youngest of the Addams Family, Pugsley loves to be tortured by his big sister. He is lost trying to figure out his place now that she has a new boyfriend and family dynamics are changing. He wants to ensure he won’t lose his sister to her new boyfriend so he takes matters in to his own hands.

Uncle Fester Serving as the narrator of the show, Uncle Fester is larger than life, lovable, childish, enthusiastic and highly incorrigible.

Grandma Fun, quirky and feisty, Grandma always has a trick up her sleeve. Grandma is wise, wacky and sometimes a bit crass. Don’t mess with Grandma!

Lurch A man of few words, Lurch is the Addams Family butler. His unmistakable commanding presence is accented by grunts, moans and deliberate movement.

Mal Beinecke The uptight and stuffy father of Lucas and exasperated husband to rhyming Alice, cynical Mal meets the Addams with skepticism. He finds the Addams to be too bizarre for his liking and cannot fathom being related to them.

Alice Beinecke Lucas’s mother and Mal’s wife, Alice is strongly devoted to her family. She presents herself as reserved and collected (even when speaking in rhyme) until she learns to unleash her wild side at dinner with the Addams.

Lucas Beinecke The hopeful romantic and son of Alice & Mal, Lucas has fallen in love with Wednesday and intends to marry her. He is optimistic and hopeful yet struggles to find the balance between his “normal” family and the macabre Addams.

The Ancestors The Addams ancestors from various eras serve as the chorus for the show and help bring the story to life. They will be featured both singing and dancing throughout the entire show (once relapsed from the family crypt!).
