Casting “Sister Act,” The Westchester Community Theater PREMIERE!
NUNS & Tons of FUN!
SISTER ACT is Broadway’s habit-forming musical comedy smash that will make you jump for joy! When wannabe disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a crime, the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. Based on the 1992 Whoopi Goldberg comedy and featuring original music by Tony, Oscar and Grammy winning composer Alan Menken this uplifting musical is filled with toe-tapping songs, outrageous show-stopping dancing and a truly moving story. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, SISTER ACT is reason to REJOICE!
This is a community theater, non-equity production. Performers are not paid.
Deloris Van Cartier: Female, 25-35 a disco diva; mouthy, brassy, and quick on the quip with gravitas enough to carry the show. Needs a powerhouse disco pop belt voice–high range. Ethnicity: African American

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities
Sister Mary Robert: Female, 18-25 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; vocal range top: A5; vocal range bottom: F#3. Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Eddie Souther: Male, 25-35 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; vocal range top: B4; vocal range bottom: Ab2.
