AUDITIONS

They’re back! The Little Sisters of Hoboken return to Theatre at the Mount in the show that wowed audiences in 1993. When the “Little Hobos” discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidently poisoned 52 of the sisters, they parade their talents in a variety show staged to raise funds so that the last four of the dearly departed can be buried. With songs and comic interludes paced at break-neck speed, and a riotous audience participation quiz that has everyone rolling in the aisles, Nunsense offers a cornucopia of hilarity for the whole family, proving conclusively that nun rhymes with fun!

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS

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.  Part requires some very physical humour. The character may be played with an Irish accent.  Voice part: Mezzo/belter (Range: B3-F5)

Sister Mary Hubert  Hubert is in charge of novices, but fancies herself as Mother Superior and is in constant competition with Mary Regina. She exudes maternal wisdom to novices, but also likes to let loose.  Voice part: Mezzo/belter (Range: G3-F5)

Sister Robert Anne  Once a child delinquent herself, this rough tough nun is a jokester and constantly challenging authority. She speaks with a thick Brooklyn accent and constantly displays her lack of refinement.  Vocal part: Mezzo/belter (Range: G3-D5)

Sister Mary Amnesia  As the name suggests, she has lost her memory and does not know who she is except 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 (Range: Db4-C6)

Sister Mary Leo  Leo is the novice nun, still learning the way and coming to terms with her decision to give up ‘Civilian’ life. She is a ballerina and displays her talents through much of the show. She is also easily swayed to join in mischief.  Vocal part: Mezzo/belter (Range: G#3-G5)
