Nunsense – Open Auditions

NUNSENSE – Open Auditions

All auditions are open and available to everyone.

NUNSENSE begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials.  The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease”.

Main Characters to be cast:

Sister Mary Regina is to ht outside world a model Mother Superior even if she was overweight.  But to those who knew her, she was an outrageous, quick-witted soul who knew how to get a laugh.  She tried to convince you that she was strict, but everyone knew that her “bark was worse than her bite!”

Sister Mary Hubert is a kind person who would always try to be understanding and diplomatic.  She taught the Novices the ground rules, and was supposed to be dignified.  But with the slightest bit of encouragement she was ready to kick up her heels.

Sister Robert Anne is a tough streetwise nun who had a heart of gold.  All the kids adored her because she spoke their language and she could hit a baseball “out of the park.”

Sister Mary Amnesia is the picture of innocence.  She couldn’t remember her past and so looked at each new day with a childlike joy.

Sister Mary Leo had been a professional dancer before she entered the convent and was always eager to display her talent.  She is very impressionable because she is young and could be easily be led astray.
