We are looking for a few good nuns or wanna-be nuns for the show NUNSENSE! Are you interested in singing and dancing with the Little Sisters of Hoboken? Auditions are scheduled for August 29th and 30th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at IPAL, 200 Iberia Street, New Iberia, LA. You will be asked to do a reading from the script and sing a song from the show.
Performance dates are November 12-14 and 18-21
Five women, ages 21 and up, will make up the cast, with the possibility of four extra cast members for the Convent Chorus.
Sister Mary Regina (Reverend Mother) is the Mother Superior of the Little Sisters of Hoboken. She tries to be strict and keep order, but things often get out of her control. She has a great sense of humor which always shines through her attempt at creating a tough exterior.
Sister Mary Hubert is the Mistress of Novices and second in command to Mother Superior. At times she finds it difficult to deal with problems she believes are created by Mother Superior’s ineptness. She and Mother Superior have a healthy and humorous rivalry.
Sister Robert Anne is a streetwise nun from Brooklyn, New York. She is one tough cookie but has a heart and soul of gold. She feels she has real theatrical potential and is frustrated by Reverend Mother’s refusal to let her “star” in the show
Sister Mary Paul (also known as Amnesia) was hit on the head with a crucifix and for a long period didn’t remember who she was. Now, everyone knows she is Sister Mary Paul, a country singer who jump-started her recording career as the first nun to appear at the Grand Ole Opry. She always seems to be a “little vacant” but innocently endearing.
Sister Mary Leo is a novice. She is easily swayed to join in the mischief. She has dedicated her life to becoming the first famous nun ballerina.
The songs for auditions are:
Sister Mary Regina- Turn Up The Spotlight
Sister Mary Hubert- Holier Than Thou
Sister Robert Anne- I Just Want To Be A Star
Sister Mary Amnesia- I Could Have Gone To Nashville
Sister Mary Leo- Benedicte
