Show Synopsis:

Sister Act is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Character Breakdown/Vocal Ranges

Deloris Van Cartier (Vocal Range: E3-F#5)

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-presenting

Age: Late 20s-40s

Mother Superior (Vocal Range: D3-E5)

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-presenting

Age: 50s-70s

Sister Mary Robert (Vocal Range: F#3-A5)

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-presenting

Age: 20s-30s

Sister Mary Patrick (Vocal Range: A3-B5)

A nun of the convent. A bubbly, excitable, over the top, larger than life character. Very innocent and not at all worldly-wise; everyone’s friend.

Gender: Female-presenting

Age: 30s-50s

Sister Mary Lazarus (Vocal Range: F3-B4)

A nun of the convent and the head of the choir. Rather deadpan and the least welcoming of any of the nuns, but she gets caught up in Deloris's soul music.

Gender: Female-presenting

Age: 50s-70s

Monsignor O'Hara (Vocal Range: E3-G4)

One of the heads of the convent. Constantly concerned with financial matters, though soul music surprisingly puts him in a different mood.

Gender: Male-presenting

Age: 40s-60s

Curtis (Vocal Range: A2-Ab4)

A club owner, notorious gangster, and Deloris's boyfriend. Cocky and controlling, always on the verge of violence.

Gender: Male-presenting

Age: 30s-40s

Eddie Souther (Ab2-B4)

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-presenting

Age: Late 20s-40s

TJ (Vocal Range: Db3-Eb5)

Curtis's nephew and one of his thugs. Deft and cognizant of the fact, constantly in a state of ignorant bliss.

Gender: Male-presenting


Joey (Vocal Range: Bb2-Eb2)

One of Curtis's thugs. Believes himself to be quite the ladies' man.

Gender: Male-presenting

Age: 30s-40s

Pablo (Vocal Range: C4-F5)

One of Curtis's thugs. A natural follower, constantly speaks in Spanish.

Gender: Male-presenting

Age: 20s-40s

Sister Mary Martin-of-Tours

A nun of the convent. Clearly in her own world, but has her moments of surprising clarity.

Gender: Female-presenting

Age: 40s-60s

Sister Mary Theresa

A nun of the convent, the oldest of the group. Decrepit at a glance, but secretly packs a punch.

Gender: Female-presenting

Age: 60s-70s

Michelle (Vocal Range: Bb3-F5)

One of Deloris's back-up singers. Lippy and always quick with a retort.

Gender: Female-presenting

Age: 20s-30s


One of Curtis's thugs. Initially thought to be a mindless yes-man, he turns out to be an undercover police informant.

Gender: Male-presenting

Age: 20s-30s

Tina (Vocal Range: Ab3-F5)

20s-30s, female-identifying. One of Deloris's back-up singers. A little thick and naive.

Gender: Female-presenting

Age: 20s-30s


Nuns; Bar Denizens (Bar Patron, Waitress, Pool Player, Drag Queen); Homeless People; Fantasy Dancers
