KAOS Musical Theatre company has plumped for the hilarious musical comedy, The Addams Family, for its next production in Kelso.

The show is scheduled for next March at the Tait Hall and follows this year’s phenomenally-successful production of The Wizard of Oz.

KAOS is hoping a chance to appear in The Addams Family will see new members join the company and take part in the fun.

There are lots of parts up for grabs, including the lead roles of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Wednesday, Pugsley, Lurch and, of course, Grandma.

Various chorus parts are also available, whether you want to just sing, dance or do both.

Full of funny dialogue, insanity and ridiculousness, The Addams Family musical 
also boasts a tremendous musical score. The first rehearsal is on Monday at 7pm at The Cross Keys Hotel in Kelso, with auditions following on September 22.

Director Pooee Pitman is thrilled to be involved with KAOS once again. “This show was first shown on Broadway only five years ago and had its Scottish premiere just last July,” Pooee told The Southern this week.

“Unlike last year’s Wizard of Oz, it will be fun to learn a whole new show from scratch. There are no young children this year, sadly, as we can only take youngsters from 14 years and upwards.

“But I hope that the audiences will be clicking their fingers to the famous Addams Family theme tune as soon as the overture starts!”
