The Phipps Center for the Arts

Sister Act Auditions

Auditions for “Sister Act,” with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater, and the book by Cheri Steinkellner and Bill Steinkellner, will be held on Wednesday, July 25, 6:00–9:00 p.m., Saturday, July 28, 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., and Saturday, August 4, 3:00-4:00 p.m., with callbacks on August 4 beginning at 4:00 p.m. at The Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson, Wis., just 20 minutes east of St. Paul. 

 

“Sister Act” is a feel-good musical comedy based on the film of the same name starring Whoopi Goldberg. When aspiring lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is placed in protective custody in a convent. She is assigned to assist with the choir, and using her disco talent, she transforms the choir into a major attraction. Unfortunately, the newfound popularity of the choir blows her cover. When confronted by the killer, she experiences the power of friendship and sisterhood. The music is energetic and uplifting, the dance opportunities are appealing, and the characters offer fun-filled creative roles.

 

Director Beth Reidenbach is looking for a large cast that features diverse characters ages 18 and older. Reidenbach is teaming up with music director Ruth Ashwood, assistant music director Ann Marie McIntire, choreographer Mackenzie Lewis, and stage manager Cheryl Solberg.

 

The director states, “This production is full of wonderful roles for women of all ages. While the story line centers on Deloris and the nuns, there are outstanding roles for men as well. Eddie, Curtis, Pablo, TJ, and Joey are all featured in musical numbers. Major female roles include Deloris, Mother Superior, Sister Mary Robert, Sister Mary Patrick, Sister Mary Lazarus, Michelle, and Tina. Dancers will be featured in many of the musical numbers. I encourage everyone with an interest to audition. The show is truly an ensemble production with the company involved in numerous musical numbers and scenes.”

 

Actors are asked to prepare 32 measures of a song, wear comfortable clothing for movement, and bring a list of rehearsal conflicts. A resume and headshot are appreciated, if available.

 

Rehearsals will begin September 4 and will include Sunday through Thursday evenings with an occasional Saturday if needed. Twelve performances will be given November 2-25 on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. as well as Sundays at 2:00 p.m.

 

Reidenbach most recently staged  “Guys on Ice.”  Other productions include “Lombardi,” “Into the Woods,” “Pump Boys and Dinettes,”  “My Fair Lady,” “The Rainmaker,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” and “Greater Tuna” at the center.
