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, which is 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. Featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages.
SISTER MARY REGINA, MOTHER SUPERIOR: Female, 60’s (Range: B3-F5)
A feisty overweight Sophie Tucker-type who can’t resist the spotlight.
SISTER MARY HUBERT, MISTRESS OF NOVICES: Female, mid 50’s (Range: G3-F5)
The second in command, she is always competing with the Mother Superior.
SISTER ROBERT ANNE: Female, Mid 30’s (Range: G3-D5)
A streetwise taught character from Brooklyn. A constant source of aggravation for the Mother Superior.
SISTER MARY AMNESIA: Female, Late 30’s (Range: Db4-C6)
This nun lost her memory after a crucifix fell on her head. She is very sweet.
SISTER MARY LEO: Female, Early/Mid 30’s (Range: G#3-G5)
The novice, who has entered the convent with the firm desire to become the first nun ballerina.
Auditions: March 9 & 10 (tent.) approximately 7pm to 9pm
