Casting 

Please note that all roles are singing roles. Most roles also require dancing/moving well. 

Deloris Van Cartier – Age: 25 to 35. Aspiring performer, loud-mouthed, and sassy, but ultimately caring. Starring role. 

Mother Superior – Age: 35 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. 

Sister Mary Robert – Age: 16 to 25. A postulant, shy and soft-spoken, but soon finds her voice. Performers auditioning for this role should be prepared to sing the final verse of ‘The Life I Never Led” from the lyric “I want to be brave.” 

Sister Mary Patrick – Age: 35 to 50. A nun of the convent. Consistently perky, enthusiastic, and easily excitable. 

Sister Mary Lazarus – Age: 35 to 50. A nun of the convent and the head of the choir. Rather deadpan, straightforward. 

Monsignor O’Hara – Male, Age: 45 to 60. Heads of the convent/parish. 

Curtis – Age: 30 to 40. A club owner, notorious gangster, and Deloris’s boyfriend. Cocky, controlling and violent. 

Eddie Souther – Male, Age: 25 to 35. Police officer and a high school classmate of Deloris who still yearns for Deloris. 

Tj, Joey and Pablo – Male, Age 16 – 40. Curtis’s thugs. Pablo must speak Spanish. 

Sister Mary Martin-of-tours – Age: 35 to 50. A nun of the convent. 

Sister Mary Theresa – Age: 50 to 70. The oldest nun of the convent. Decrepit at a glance but packs a punch. 

Michelle and Tina – Age: 20 to 30. Deloris’s back-up singers. 

Male and Female Ensemble – Ages 16 – 60. Nuns, Bar Patrons, Waitress, Drag Queen, Fantasy Dancers
