Audition Information:
Auditions are open to everyone. You do not need to be an Edgewood College student to audition, community members are welcome.  

For auditions, please prepare 1 minute of a musical theatre song in the style of the show. Preferably NOT from the show. Have your music in your proper key, marked, back-to-back, three-holed punched and in a three-ring binder and accompanist will be provided. We will allow individuals to sing acapella, but one should anticipate vocalizing exercises.  

Performers who would like to be considered for a lead role must also prepare a 1-minute comedic monologue in addition to their 1 minute of music. 

All Edgewood College Theatre Majors and Minors (sophomore-seniors) will also be required to prepare a 1-minute comedic monologue regardless of the role they are auditioning for (i.e. chorus-lead).  

Wear loose and comfortable clothing and shoes for the audition.  

 
On Nov. 23 our first 40 minutes will be an open call. This is for students/community members who want to participate but might not have a song prepared or might find the process intimidating. During this open call we will work with you on vocalizations. No need to prepare, no need to sign up!  Come as you are and we will work with you. This audition is open to ALL from 7-7:30 pm.  If you attend open call for vocalizations, you will still need to attend the dance portion of auditions. 

 

COVID-19 Policy: All performers must be fully vaccinated the first official rehearsal, 1/18/2022. Performers will wear masks during rehearsals. 

Casting

 

Character Breakdown

Deloris Van Cartier

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.

Gender: female

Age: 25 to 35

Vocal range top: F#5

Vocal range bottom: E3

 

 

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.

Gender: female

Age: 50 to 70

Vocal range top: E5

Vocal range bottom: D3

 

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.

Gender: female

Age: 16 to 25

Vocal range top: A5

Vocal range bottom: F#3

 

Sister Mary Patrick

A nun of the convent. Consistently perky, enthusiastic, and easily excitable.

Gender: female

Age: 50 to 70

Vocal range top: B4

Vocal range bottom: F3

 

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.

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.

Gender: male

Age: 25 to 35

Vocal range top: B4

Vocal range bottom: Ab2

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.
