PARTS AVAILABLE:


  • Deloris Van Cartier: (Soprano/Dance/Female/Appears mid 20s to mid 30s) An aspiring performer, trying to find both fame and a place in the world. When forced to hide in the convent, she initially refuses to embrace her new lifestyle but learns to embrace it when she works with the choir. Loud-mouthed, and sassy, but ultimately caring. Vocal Range: F#5-E3
  • Mother Superior: (Mezzo-Soprano/ Dance/Female/Appears mid 50s to 70) The head of the convent, sarcastic and a bit stiff. Extremely protective about keeping her sisters away from the outside world, which puts her in direct opposition to Deloris and her musical teachings. Vocal Range: E5-D3
  • Sister Mary Robert: (Soprano/Dance/ Female/Appears mid-teens to mid 20s) A postulant, abandoned as a baby and raised at the convent. Shy and soft-spoken, but singing with Deloris lets her find her voice. Her wallflower lifestyle has made her live a shell of a life. Vocal Range: A5-F#3
  • Sister Mary Patrick: (Dance/Female/ Appears mid 30s to mid 50s) A nun of the convent. Consistently perky, enthusiastic, and easily excitable.
  • Sister Mary Lazarus: (Mezzo-Soprano/ Dance/Female/Appears 50s to 70s) A nun of the convent and the head of the choir. Rather deadpan and the least welcoming of any of the nuns, but she gets caught up in Deloris’s soul music. Vocal Range: B4-F3
  • Monsignor O’hara: (Baritone/Dance/ Male/Appears 40s to 60s) One of the heads of the convent. Constantly concerned with financial matters, though soul music surprisingly puts him in a different mood. Vocal Range: G4-E3
  • Curtis: (Baritone/Dance/Male/Appears 30s to 40s) A club owner, notorious gangster, and Deloris’s boyfriend. Cocky and controlling, always on the verge of violence. Vocal Range: Ab4-A2
  • Eddie Souther: (Tenor/Dance/Male/ Appears mid 20s to mid 30s) The desk chief at the Philadelphia police station and a high school classmate of Deloris who helps get her into hiding. Faces a lot of nerves when under pressure, causing him to sweat profusely. He still yearns for Deloris after all these years, and dreams of being her hero. Vocal Range: B4-Ab2
  • TJ: (Tenor/Dance/Male/Appears midteens to mid 20s) Curtis’s nephew and one of his thugs. Deft and cognizant of the fact, constantly in a state of ignorant bliss. Vocal Range: Eb5-Db3
  • Joey: (Tenor/Dance/Male/Appears 30s to 40s) One of Curtis’s thugs. Believes himself to be quite the ladies’ man. Vocal Range: Eb5-Bb2

  • Ernie: (Dance/Male/Appears mid 20s to mid 30s) One of Curtis’s thugs. Initially thought to be a mindless yes-man, he turns out to be an undercover police informant.
