Sister Act is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. 

Seeking a diverse cast with strong African-American female lead.

Character Breakdown: 

  • Deloris Van Cartier
    A strong willed young African American woman, and a talented singer. Deloris aspires to fortune and fame in the world of entertainment. When forced to hide in the convent, she initially refuses to embrace her new lifestyle. As she works with the choir of fellow nuns she discovers what it means to belong. Loud-mouthed, and sassy, but ultimately caring. Age Range: 20s to 30s

  • Mother Superior
    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. Age Range: 40s to 60s

  • Eddie Souther
    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. Age Range: 20s to 30s

  • Sister Mary Robert
    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. Age Range: Teens to 20s 

  • Sister Mary Patrick
    A nun of the convent. Consistently perky, enthusiastic, and easily excitable. 

  • Sister Mary Lazarus
    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.

  • Monsignor O'hara
    One of the heads of the convent. Constantly concerned with financial matters, though soul music surprisingly puts him in a different mood.

  • Curtis
    A club owner, notorious gangster, and Deloris's boyfriend. Cocky and controlling, always on the verge of violence.

  • Tj
    Curtis's nephew and one of his thugs. Deft and cognizant of the fact, constantly in a state of ignorant bliss.

  • Joey
    One of Curtis's thugs. Believes himself to be quite the ladies' man.

  • Pablo
    One of Curtis's thugs. A natural follower, only speaks Spanish.

  • Sister Mary Martin-of-tours
    A nun of the convent. Clearly in her own world, but has her moments of surprising clarity.

  • Sister Mary Theresa
    A nun of the convent, the oldest of the group. Decrepit at a glance, but secretly packs a punch.

  • Michelle
    One of Deloris's back-up singers. Lippy and always quick with a retort.

  • Tina
    One of Deloris's back-up singers. A little thick and naive.

  • Ernie
    One of Curtis's thugs. Initially thought to be a mindless yes-man, he turns out to be an undercover police informant.

  • Ensemble
    Nuns; Bar Denizens (Bar Patron, Waitress, Pool Player, Drag Queen); Homeless People; Fantasy Dancers
