Songs and Monologues
Morticia Monologue: Humiliated! Shamed! Mortified! I gave up my dreams for the sake of this family. I wanted to travel. I never saw the sewers of Paris! And now it’ll never happen! So that’s how it ends….alone and forgotten in a tiny room, living on cat food and broken dreams - that’s what happens to mothers. Look at yours. She came for the weekend, the weeks turned into months, it’s twelve years later and she’s still up there: Deceived. Deluded. Smoking weed in the attic. Song: Death is Just Around the Corner- Bar 15 to 30 Download PDF: Page 1 Page 2 **Preferably down the octave
Gomez Monologue: Aaaaahhh….The intoxicating smell of the graveyard. Once a year, we gather beneath our Family Tree to honor the great cycle of life and death. Come every member of our clan-living-dead and-undecided and let us celebrate what it is to be an Addams. Come to me, my luscious wife-oh she of skin so pale, eyes so black, and dress cut down to Venezuela-and tell us what it is that every Addams hopes for! I love it when you talk sexy! Song: When You’re An Addams- bar 5 to 32 Monologue and song combination Download PDF: Page 1Page 2Page 3
Lucas Monologue: Wait, wait! We have to talk this over for a minute. We can’t just run away and get married. You said it was important that everyone got along. But they want to kill each other! You want that hanging over our heads? You know what I think? You don’t really wanna get married. You just said that to stick it to your mother. Let's go back in the house and make some rational decisions. Look -I -I can't run away like this. It's too crazy. I'm sorry. I can be impulsive! ....I just need to think about it first! Song: One Normal Night- Bar 70 to 92 Download PDF: Page 1Page 2Page 3
Pugsley Monologue: Grandma- what if there was this girl who met this person and he’s all like “Hey, it’s the Pugster. What up, little man?” and she’s all like “golly” and “we’re gonna go now” and they’re running away together. What would you give her? Song: What If -bar 187 to 219 Download PDF: Page 1 Page 2
Fester Monologue: I’m in love. You’re probably thinking, what could a fat, bald person of no specific sexuality know about love? But I, too, am in love. Fester loves! I’m in love with the moon! I haven’t told her yet. Full disclosure! Song: When you’re an Addams- bar 275-295 top line Download PDF: Page 1Page 2Page 3Page 4
Wednesday Monologue: This dinner has to go ok. Oh, Pugsley- ever since I met him, I wanna laugh and cry and everything seems right and wrong at the same time and then sometimes I just want to rip his flesh off and eat him up until there’s nothing left. Song: Pulled- bar 66 to 102 Download PDF: Page 1Page 2Page 3
Alice Monologue: Remember how it used to be, Mal? How we’d look at each other and leave the restaurant in the middle of dinner and rush home and go upstairs; and sometimes we couldn’t even wait and you’d just pull the car over to the side of the—(Lucas interrupts) Lighten up, Lucas. Parents do it. Live with it. Remember, Mal? When we were crazy and the future didn’t exist? What happened, How long do I have to wait?

Morticia Addams, Alto/Mezzo Sop. (G3 – Bb5), 35-50: the real head of the family and the critical and moving force behind it; comedic actress with a sexy, dry wit; feels her husband is hiding something from her and will use any tactic to lure the secret out; a strong dancer.
Uncle Fester, Tenor (C3 – C5), 30-50: Serves as the musical’s narrator; rotund and child-like, hugely enthusiastic and totally incorrigible; a vaudevillian, needs strong comedy and tenor vocals.
