Wednesday Addams has grown up and fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, 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.

CHARACTERS


GOMEZ ADDAMS: Pani Taukiri

A seductive man of Spanish descent who takes great pride in his family and revels in all it means to be an “Addams”. He struggles with having to keep his daughter Wednesday’s secret from his wife Morticia, whom he adores more than death. Being caught between his daughter and his wife, he feels completely trapped and unable to make either happy, which is his greatest joy.


MORTICIA ADDAMS: Debi Walters-Brown

A dark and mysterious woman, who has a body to die for, Morticia is the strength of the family and often seems be the only emotionally mature member of the clan. She has a seductive and sexy, dry wit. She can sense that her husband is hiding something from her and will use any tactic to lure the secret out.


WEDNESDAY ADDAMS: Jessica Hamer

Wednesday is an attractive, deadpan girl, who has the same dry wit and sensibility as her mother, Morticia. She has found love with Lucas Beineke, a “normal” boy and wants to introduce her family to his. She experiences the youthful drama that comes with first love. Lucas can actually put a smile on her face.


PUGSLEY ADDAMS: Max Alldred

A charming, funny and naive (almost to the point of being dim-witted) boy, who loves being tortured by his sister, Wednesday. Pugsley feels that he is losing his sister to her new boyfriend and he isn't happy about it. He decides to take matters into his own hands and get rid of Lucas by any means possible.


FESTER ADDAMS: Dean Alsop

Fester is Gomez' older brother, who serves as the Narrator in this story. He is larger than life, energetic, joyous and totally incorrigible. Fester is a vaudevillian style comedian with a child-like presence. He leads the Ancestors in their quest to help Wednesday and Lucas towards their happy ending. Fester is in love with the moon.


GRANDMA: Susan Alves

Grandma has always been a very powerful witch and potion brewer. By looking at her, you get the impression that she was once  a very beautiful woman, but she has since gone to seed. Even though she is a fun and quirky 102 year old woman, she is very feisty and you don't want to mess with her. Both Gomez and Morticia argue over whose mother she actually is.


LURCH: Shane Green

Lurch is a towering, zombie-like male, who has been the butler for The Addams Family for many, many years. Even though he usually speaks only in deep moans and groans, Lurch knows all. He is extremely loyal to every member of the family and is always around when he is needed. His movements and mannerisms are very slow.



THE BEINEKE FAMILY


LUCAS BEINEKE: Llewelyn Yearbury-Murphy

A very attractive and in shape young man, who is totally devoted to Wednesday. He fell in love with his new girlfriend at first sight and his ultimate plan is to marry her. Like Wednesday, Lucas experiences the youthful pain and drama of young love and struggles with the differences between his family and the Addams family.


MAL BEINEKE: Dean Scanlen

Malcolm is the stuffy, uptight father of Lucas and exasperated husband to his rhyming wife, Alice. When he was a young man, he was a huge fan and avid follower of The Grateful Dead but as he grew older, he lost that side of himself. Always looking out for his family, Mal doesn't like anything that he perceives to be weird or kooky.


ALICE BEINEKE: Pru Martin

The mother of Lucas, Alice is extremely devoted to her family and always puts aside her own desires. She is a quirky, cheerful woman, who often speaks in rhyme. While at the Addams Family dinner party, she accidentally drinks a potion that causes her to finally let her hair down and unleash her dark and wild side.


THE ANCESTORS


The Ancestors are the ghostly male and female relatives of the Addams Family. They were summoned by Fester, who won’t let them go back to the afterlife until they help Wednesday and Lucas have their happy ending. They are fun, energetic and quirky characters.
