After a year long search and auditions across Australia, Producer, Rodney Rigby, announced that the seven members of the weird and wonderful Addams Family will be:
John Waters as Gomez, Chloe Dallimore as Morticia, Russell Dykstra as Uncle Fester, Teagan Wouters as Wednesday, Ben Hudson as Lurch, Meredith O’ Reilly as Grandma and Liam Faulkner-Dimond as Pugsley.
Acclaimed Broadway director and recipient of four Tony Awards, Jerry Zaks, will direct The Addams Family in Australia.
Charles Addams, the creator of several thousand cartoons and drawings, many of which were published in The New Yorker, created the characters that came to be known as The Addams Family. With a unique style that combined the twisted, macabre and just plain weird with charm and wit, Addams’ drawings have entertained millions and served as the inspiration for television series and motion pictures.
The Addams Family is sure to be a crowd pleaser and should entertain audiences of all ages. Sandra T. PHOTOS: John Pond ©
