September Workshops

We ran three workshop auditions in September.  We’re now casting the show.


ACTiv8 Theatre Company Show "The Addams Family"

Celebrate the wackiness in every family with this Broadway musical adapted for young performers!

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family whom her parents have never met. She confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Information about Rehearsals, performances, costumes, props, fees and chaperoning

  • REHEARSALS: start on October 4th on Sunday afternoons 3-5pm at the John Tallack Centre, Cullompton.
  • DATES: When you are cast in the show we will send you a list of dates and ask you to commit to attending all the rehearsal dates you possibly can, and all the final rehearsals and performances. You can see the dates list HERE
  • PERFORMANCES: These will be in Kentisbeare Village Hall (large car park and great for shows). The final rehearsals will also take place in the hall, so you will need transport for those days. The rehearsals marked in RED on the dates list will be in Kentisbeare Village Hall.
  • COSTUMES and PROPS: We’ll be sending out details of your characters costume(s) and will be asking you to help gather the items you need if possible. We’ll also help with finding items where we can. We may also need help with finding props and items needed during the show… We’d love to have parents' help with that.
  • FEES: The Addams Family will take place over about 20 rehearsal sessions and 3 performances. That’s approximately 56 hours of attendance between October 3rd and the performances on Feb 4th and 5th, 2022.  The show fee is £280. This equates to approximately £5 per hour. Please pay the whole amount, or set up a standing order for £56 on the 1st of each month, for 5 months: October, November, December 2021, January and February 2022.
  • CHAPERONING - parent help: We have a qualified Chaperone on our team who will oversee the helpers that look after our members when they are at rehearsals and performances. We will need help supervising the children during our final rehearsals and during the performances too and will be in touch to ask you to help with that if you can.
  • DBS, safeguarding and first aid: All our professional team and our helpers have up to date DBS certification and safeguarding training, and we all have taken part in first aid training too, with one qualified person overseeing first aid in a supervisory role.
