Casting for the following roles (both men & women are encouraged to audition):
Sister Mary Regina (Mother Superior) - The head of the convent, she is respected greatly by the sisters. While she is strict, she has a hard time keeping the craziness of the convent at bay. She keeps her guard up in front of the nuns but has an extroverted side. This part requires some very physical humor and may be played with an Irish accent. Vocal part: mezzo/belter.
Sister Mary Hubert- Hubert is in charge of novices but fancies herself a Mother Superior and is therefore in constant competition with Mary Regina. She exudes maternal wisdom to the novices but also likes to let loose. Vocal part: Mezzo/belter.
Sister Robert Anne- Once a child delinquent herself, this rough, tough nun is a jokester who constantly challenges authority. She speaks with a thick Brooklyn accent and constantly displays her lack of refinement. Vocal part: Mezzo/belter
Sister Mary Amnesia- As her name suggests, this sister has lost her memory and doesn’t know who she is, other than the fact that she is a nun. She is spacey and incoherent, often slipping into displays inappropriate for a nun. Must be able to sing in classical and country styles. Vocal part: Soprano AND belter
Sister Mary Leo- Leo is the novice nun, still learning her way and coming to terms with her decision to give up "civilian" life. She is a ballerina and displays her talents throughout much of the show. (Please note she/he does not need to be a trained ballet dancer.) She is also easily swayed to join in the mischief. Vocal part: mezzo/belter
