On 13 March 2017 members of the Addams and Beineke families gathered for our first week of rehearsals for The Addams Family Musical UK Tour.
The first week of rehearsals were a success with everyone working extremely hard for the opening in just one month’s time on 20 April.
Cast members spent the week getting to know their characters, looking at Charles Addams’ original sketches and learning his ideas behind them then, and how they’ve developed to the characters they are now.
As well as learning about their character’s and The Addams Family history, the cast started to get to grips with the fantastic and funny script written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice.
Led by Musical Director Andrew Hilton the cast also began practicing and arranging Andrew Lippa‘s fantastic songs. Get a sneak peak of what to expect by watching Carrie Hope Fletcher singing Wednesday Addams’ song ‘Pulled’ in the video below.
Samantha Womack (playing Morticia) and Cameron Blakely (playing Gomez) were hard at work in the dance studio learning how to tango, Gomez and Morticia’s signature dance style.
Ending the busy first week of rehearsals, various cast members spent their Friday filming some exciting snippets from their songs. More to come on this soon, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date with the latest from inside from the rehearsal room….
