Those auditioning should prepare one minute of a song from “The Addams Family” and a one-minute monologue of their choice. A piano accompanist will be provided.

Based on characters created by Charles Addams, this new musical comedy explores the creepy, kooky, weird and wonderful world of the Addams family. Wednesday Addams has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet young man from—gasp—a respectable family. She’s confided in her father and now, Gomez Addams must do the unthinkable—keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Change is just around the corner for the entire family in this delightful tale, created by “Jersey Boys” authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music and lyrics provided by the award-winning Andrew Lippa.

The show is being directed by Craig Rich, chair of CLC’s theatre department. For audition information, contact Rich at (847) 543-2567 or To stay current on CLC Theatre, visit the department’s Facebook page.
