Nunsense Auditions This Week

Director Jeffrey Brown will be looking for five women to play the Little Sisters of Hoboken in Dan Goggin’s wacky musical Nunsense.  Auditions are scheduled for Sunday and Monday, August 27 and 28 in the Werlein Annex Studio (that new building on the City Center Campus).  Sunday time is 2:30Monday time is 6:30, and you can choose whichever is most convenient for you.

Plan to sing 16 to 32 bars of a Broadway-style song for which you bring sheet music for the provided accompanist.  We’ll also read from the script.

Roles available include:

  • SISTER MARY REGINA, MOTHER SUPERIOR: Female, 60’s (Range: B3-F5) A feisty Sophie Tucker-type who can’t resist the spotlight.
  • SISTER MARY HUBERT, MISTRESS OF NOVICES: Female, mid 50’s (Range: G3-F5) The second in command, she is always competing with the Mother Superior.
  • SISTER ROBERT ANNE: Female, Mid 30’s (Range:G3-D5) A streetwise character from Brooklyn. A constant source of aggravation for the Mother Superior.
  • SISTER MARY AMNESIA: Female, Late 30’s (Range: Db4-C6) This nun lost her memory after a crucifix fell on her head. She is very sweet.
  • SISTER MARY LEO: Female, Early/Mid 30’s (Range: G#3-G5) The novice, who has entered the convent with the firm desire to become the first nun ballerina.
