Wednesday absolutely intrigues him. Actor requirements: Attractive nerdy, any gender, tenor, moves well

While at the Addams family dinner party, she drinks a potion that causes her to let her hair down and speak the truth rather than always appearing as “perfect” Actor requirements: Comedic actor, Soprano, any gender
GRANDMA She’s one feisty old woman. Fun and quirky, but don’t mess with her. Grandma often schemes with Pugsley and offers advice when needed. She’s more of an oddball than a typical, comforting grandmother figure. Actor requirements: Comedic actor, Alto/Mezzo/Character vocals, any gender
