Casting Call for 
Nunsense

Directed by Scot Baronet

Auditions for the our third production of the season, Nunsense, have been set for October 24th and 25th at 6:00 PM both nights.  Anyone interested in auditioning will only need to attend one night of auditions.

The director asks anyone auditioning to prepare a one minute song selection.  You will also read from the script and learn a choreographed section as part of the audition.  Please dress comfortably!

The musical consists of the following roles:

  • Sister Mary Regina (Mother Superior): A feisty, Sophie Tucker-type who can’t resist the spotlight.  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. Role requires some very physical humor. The character may be played with an Irish accent. Voice part: Mezzo Belt. Dance: musical theatre singer choreography.
  • Sister Mary Hubert (Mistress of Novices): Hubert is in charge of novices, but fancies herself a
    Mother Superior and is constant competition with Mary Regina. She exudes maternal wisdom to
    novices, but also likes to let loose. Voice part: Mezzo Belt. Dance: musical theatre singer
    choreography and tap.
  • 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: Mostly Mezzo Belt – she has a few moments with a sweet soprano tonality. Dance: musical theatre singer choreography and tap.
  • 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 Belt. Dance: musical theatre singer choreography and tap. Extra: puppetry and ventriloquism a plus.
  • Sister Mary Leo: Leo is the novice nun who has entered the convent with the firm desire to become the first nun ballerina. Still learning the way and coming to terms with her decision to give up “civilian” life, she deems herself quite the ballerina and displays her talents through much of the show. She is easily swayed to join in mischief. Vocal part: Soprano. Dance: musical theatre singer choreography, tap and pointe ballet.
