The Addams Family musical is a show with a stunning array of lead roles, cameos, acting roles, dance parts and terrific ensemble participation. Prospective auditionees are expected to do some research into the show, its characters and potential interpretations. 

There will be a pre-audition info session on Tuesday February 6 where new and returning students can have all their questions answered.

Auditions for cast are open to any student of Ringwood Secondary College in 2018.

 The cast size is capped according to the dimensions of the stage, costuming and administration requirements. Therefore, the audition process is competitive. Auditions are conducted individually and in front of a panel of production team members as appointed by the director. Casting decisions are entirely at the discretion of the production team and are made in accordance with the specific requirements of the show.

 Students must select and prepare one song from the list below. For each song, the sheet music and backing track excerpt to be used in the audition can be found on the AUDITIONS page of the production website sometime after Tuesday January 30, 2018. (Keep checking back – it might take a while to compile. A Facebook notification will go out when it is ready.)

 Students will also be asked to complete a ‘cold read’ of some dialogue from the show. You will be asked to read the dialogue in an appropriate American accent.

 Students must sign up for a general audition slot on one of the following afternoons:

Tuesday February 13 between 3.30pm and 7pm
Wednesday February 14 between 3.30pm and 7pm

Signing up is an online process and must be completed through the website:
