Please consult the character breakdown below to familiarise yourself with the roles available and prepare two contrasting songs for your audition (e.g. musical theatre/pop song/church hymn).

Synopsis
The Order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken take over a high school auditorium to hold a fundraising variety show to raise money to bury several sisters (who were accidentally poisoned by their cook). They must inter the nuns before the health inspector comes and finds the dead nuns in their freezer! Fraught with hilarity, both Catholic and otherwise, we watch as five nuns try to perform their planned performance amidst chaos and calamity.

The original Off-Broadway production opened 12 December 1985, running for 3,672 performances and becoming the second-longest-running Off-Broadway show in history.

Characters
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

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

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

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

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
