The Addams Family – we have a cast!

We had a record number of young people applying to audition for us this time and were blown away by the quality of their auditions and the talent they showed us.

This gave us a tough couple of hours deliberating, but we finally have a full cast for The Addams Family!

Congratulations to all successful candidates, and commiserations those that did not make the cast this time. It’s so sad to have to turn away talented youngsters who have put so much time and effort in auditioning. You all did yourselves proud and we would have included everyone if we could fit you all on stage and in the dressing rooms!

Rehearsals have started already and we had lots of laughs at our first script read-through for The Addams Family.

A hilarious script, fabulous music and an amazingly talented cast – we are so excited about this show!
