Kid’s Theater Workshop Auditions

The Pittsfield Players will hold auditions for their 2019 Kid’s Theater Workshop production of The Addams Family, Young@Partat The Scenic Theatre, 6 Depot St. in Pittsfield on Sunday and Monday, December 16 and 17 at 4 pm both days. Those auditioning will be taught a song from the show and asked to sing in a group and, if they wish, as a solo. They’ll also learn a few simple dance steps and be asked to read from the script.

Hundreds of years ago, the Addams family ancestors came from the old country and settled on a plot of land in what is now New York’s Central Park. The family flourished for many generations, and eventually, a huge house was built where a great Spanish oak, the Addams Family Tree, had been planted to protect the ancestral graves from such annoyances as sunlight and tourists. As the curtain rises, the last dead leaf of autumn falls from the Family Tree, and all is right with the morbid, macabre world of Gomez, Morticia, Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and Lurch. They’ve gathered – where else? – in the family graveyard, to celebrate life and death in a yearly ritual to connect with their past and ensure their future. They seem at peace, not just with each other and their inimitable, unchanging Addams-ness, but with their dead ancestors, too – who emerge from their graves on this night each year to join in this celebration of continuity. But, at the end of the ritual, Fester blocks the ancestors’ return to their graves. Those unchanging Addams family values are about to be tested. Fester enlists their help to set things right, just in case a new family secret goes terribly wrong. What’s the secret? Wednesday Addams, that irresistible bundle of malice, has grown up and found love. So what’s the problem? The young man, Lucas Beineke, is from Ohio, and his parents are coming to dinner to meet the family. Two different worlds are about to collide. Will love triumph, or will everyone go home vaguely depressed?

The show has 10 major roles and many parts for the ensemble as a whole. There’s lots of singing and dancing, and tons of fun to be had in this year’s Kid’s Workshop. If you are interested in working behind the scenes on the show, please come to the auditions to sign up for tech crew.

The Kid’s Theater Workshop is a program by kids for kids ages 8 to 18, and participants not only perform on stage but also work behind the scenes, learning about set design and construction, set painting, stage managing, stage lighting and sound and costumes and make-up. The group rehearses two days a week after school and on Saturdays and then performs the show at two matinees for local schools and three evening shows for the general public. This year, the shows will be performed February 19 through 23, with a set strike and cast party on Sunday, February 26. For further information, contact director Maye Hart at maye@pittsfieldplayers.com.
