Synopsis:

 

Sister Act is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

 

When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Available Roles:

 

Deloris Van Cartier: African American Female / Vocal range top: F#5 - Vocal range bottom: E3
 

An aspiring performer, trying to find both fame and a place in the world. When forced to hide in the convent, she initially refuses to embrace her new lifestyle but learns to embrace it when she works with the choir. Brassy and sassy, but ultimately caring.

 

Mother Superior: Female / Vocal range top: E5 - Vocal range bottom: D3
The head of the convent, sarcastic and a bit stiff. Extremely protective about keeping her sisters away from the outside world, which puts her in direct opposition to Deloris and her musical teachings.

 

Sister Mary Robert: Female / Vocal range top: A5 - Vocal range bottom: F#3 A postulant abandoned as a baby and raised at the convent. Shy and soft-spoken, but singing with Deloris lets her find her voice. Her wallflower lifestyle has made her live a shell of a life.

 

Sister Mary Patrick: Female. A nun of the convent. Consistently perky, enthusiastic, and easily excitable.

 

Sister Mary Lazarus: Female / Vocal range top: B4 - Vocal range bottom: F3 A nun of the convent and the head of the choir. Rather deadpan and the least welcoming of any of the nuns, but she gets caught up in Deloris's soul music.

 

Monsignor O'Hara: Male / Vocal range top: G4 - Vocal range bottom: E3
One of the heads of the convent. Constantly concerned with financial matters, though soul music surprisingly puts him in a different mood.

 

Curtis: Male / Vocal range top: Ab4 - Vocal range bottom: A2
A club owner, notorious gangster, and Deloris's boyfriend. Cocky and controlling, always on the verge of violence.

 

Eddie Souther: Male / Vocal range top: B4 - Vocal range bottom: Ab2
The desk chief at the Philadelphia police station and a high school classmate of Deloris who helps get her into hiding. Faces a lot of nerves when under pressure, causing him to sweat profusely. He still yearns for Deloris after all these years and dreams of being her hero.

 

TJ: Male / Vocal range top: Eb5 - Vocal range bottom: Db3
Curtis's nephew and one of his thugs. Deft and cognizant of the fact, constantly in a state of ignorant bliss.

 

Joey: Male / Vocal range top: Eb5 - Vocal range bottom: Bb2
One of Curtis's thugs. Believes himself to be quite the ladies' man.

 

Pablo: Male / Vocal range top: F5 - Vocal range bottom: C4
One of Curtis's thugs. A natural follower, constantly speaks in Spanish.

 

Sister Mary Martin-of-tours: Female
A nun of the convent. Clearly in her own world, but has her moments of surprising clarity.

 

Sister Mary Theresa: Female
A nun of the convent, the oldest of the group. Decrepit at a glance, but secretly packs a punch.

 

Michelle: Female / Vocal range top: F5 - Vocal range bottom: Bb3
One of Deloris's backup singers. Lippy and always quick with a retort.

 

Tina: Female / Vocal range top: F5 - Vocal range bottom: Ab3
One of Deloris's backup singers. A little thick and naive.

 

Ernie: Male
One of Curtis's thugs. Initially thought to be a mindless yes-man, he turns out to be an undercover police informant.

 

Ensemble: Nuns; Bar Denizens (Bar Patron, Waitress, Pool Player, Drag Queen); Homeless People; Fantasy Dancers
