CASTING REQUIREMENTS

 

We seek a cast of five strong, charismatic, collaborative female actors for this production. All should have basic music sightreading skills, a strong harmonies/part singing foundation (think Andrews Sisters), and intermediate movement and dance skills (we will be tapping in this show, among other styles). In an effort to minimize the number of rehearsals while maximizing our time in the rehearsal room, we are asking that all actors cast study and learn their material on their own before our first scheduled rehearsal on September 10th. We will provide all necessary resources for our cast to come ready to work for our short but mighty rehearsal process. Actors must be available for all tech week rehearsals and all performance dates to be considered for casting. All actors cast must be 18 or older on or before the first rehearsal. The only potential exception to the age requirement is for those considered for Sister Leo. All candidates for this role must be over the age of 16. Anyone under the age of 18 is welcome to audition for us for experience and feedback.

 

ABOUT THE SHOW

 

Nunsense! begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, currently set up for the eighth-grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. This show has become an international phenomenon featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages.

 

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

 

Sister Mary Regina-Mother Superior – This role is cast and will be played by Jennifer Burnett.

Sister Mary Hubert-Mistress of the Novices – Mezzo-Soprano Vocal Range (G3-F5) Vocal Technique: Belting, Gospel Dancing: A Mover. Sister Mary Hubert is the second in command at the convent. In charge of the novice nuns but feels like she could be a Mother Superior. She is in constant competition with Sister Mary Regina. Sister Hubert always finds a way to be in charge and have her opinions heard. She likes to let loose and is always ready to help out her fellow sisters, providing a shoulder for them to lean on. This character requires a strong mezzo-soprano, gospel-style belt.

Sister Mary Amnesia – Soprano Vocal Range (C#4/Db4- C6 Soprano C, High C) Vocal Technique: Belting, Operatic, Country. Dancing: A Mover. Sister Mary Amnesia is the sweet, forgetful nun of the convent. A crucifix fell on her head, causing Sister Mary Amnesia to lose her memory. The only thing she can remember is that she is a nun. Sister Amnesia is spacey, incoherent, and often slips into displays that are unsuitable behavior for a nun. While she is very forgetful, Sister Amnesia always tries to help out her fellow Sisters. She has a sweet and optimistic demeanor. Sister Amnesia also has a puppet alter ego named Sister Mary Annette, so strong puppetry skills are an asset for this character. This character must be able to sing in various styles, including country, classical, and musical theatre belt. She must have a high soprano range and be able to belt in her lower register.

Sister Mary Leo – Soprano Vocal Range (G#3/Ab3-G5) Vocal Technique: Belting Dancing: A Dancer (with a ballet background). Sister Mary Leo is the youngest of all the nuns in the convent. She is a novice nun and is still struggling to accept her decision to give up her old life. Sister Mary Leo is a ballerina and enjoys praying through dance. She shows off her dancing talents throughout the show. This character must have a strong mezzo-soprano belt and good dance abilities.

Sister Robert Anne – Mezzo Soprano Vocal Range (G3-F5) Vocal Technique: Belting. Dancing: A Mover. Sister Robert Anne is the former “bad girl” of the convent. She was a delinquent when she was growing up and is constantly challenging authority. Sister Robert Anne is a rough and tough nun with a thick Brooklyn accent. She lacks the refinement of her fellow sisters, but what she lacks in refinement, she makes up in street-smarts. She is constantly butting heads with Mother Superior, Reverend Mother Mary Regina. This character requires a strong mezzo-soprano belt.
