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, lots of attitude, but ultimately caring. Age 25 to 35.
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 50 to 70.
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 16 to 25.
Sister Mary Patrick – A nun of the convent. Consistently perky, enthusiastic, and easily excitable. Age 35 to 50.
Sister Mary Lazarus – A nun of the convent and head of the choir. Rather deadpan and the least welcoming of any of the nuns, but she gets caught up in Deloris' soul music. Age 50 to 70.
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. Age 45 to 60.
Curtis – A club owner, notorious gangster, and Deloris' boyfriend. Cocky and controlling, always on the verge of violence. Age 30 to 40.
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 25 to 35.
TJ – Curtis's nephew and one of his thugs. Deft and cognizant of the fact, constantly in a state of ignorant bliss. Age 16 to 30.
Joey – One of Curtis's thugs. Believes himself to be quite the ladies' man. Age 30 to 40.
Pablo – One of Curtis's thugs. A natural follower, Must be able to speak Spanish. Age: 25 to 40.
Sister Mary Martin-of-tours – A nun of the convent. Clearly in her own world, but has her moments of surprising clarity. Age 40 to 60.
Sister Mary Theresa – A nun of the convent, the oldest of the group. Decrepit at a glance, but secretly packs a punch. Age 60 to 70.
Michelle – One of Deloris's back-up singers. Lippy and always quick with a retort. Age 20 to 30.
Tina – One of Deloris's back-up singers. A little thick and naive. Age 20 to 30.
Ernie – One of Curtis's thugs. Initially thought to be a mindless yes-man, he turns out to be an undercover police informant. Age 25 to 35.
