Spooky kids wanted for theatre group's new show

A Llangollen theatre group is on the lookout for spooky kids to appear in its next production. 

Fresh from its success with Little Shop of Horrors last spring, Llangollen Operatic’s junior section, the Young ‘Uns, is returning to the world of the crazy supernatural to stage The Addams Family musical from February 16-18 next year. 

Preparations for the production are already underway and producer Pamela Williams has put out the call for budding young actors to fill a number of key roles. 

She said: “Basically we need boys. We are going to hold open auditions for the male roles of Gomez, Fester, Pugsley, Mal and Lucas. 

“They’re all superb parts and audition practice will be on Monday, September 5, from 6-8pm at the Operatic Studio off Castle Street. The idea is to go over songs, characters and dialogue. 

“The actual auditions will be in the same place the following Saturday, September 10, from 10am-12noon, and these are just for boys aged up to and including 18 years." 

The Addams Family is a musical comedy with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. 

The show is based upon The Addams Family characters created by Charles Addams in his single-panel gag cartoons, which depict a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre. 

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, is all grown up and has a shocking secret that only Gomez knows. 

She's fallen in love with a sweet young man from a respectable family. With his cherished Morticia in the dark will Gomez manage to keep his daughter’s secret until the two families meet for a fateful dinner with hilarious consequences?
