NUNSENSE:
Music ,Book and Lyrics by Dan Goggin
Directed by Steve Cairns
Choreography by Kiersten Gasemy
Music Direction by Matthew Dohm
 
Character Breakdown:
Sister Mary Regina (Mother Superior): This role has been cast.
 
Sister Mary Hubert (Mezzo/belter): Hubert is in charge of novices, but
fancies herself a Mother Superior and is constant competition with Mary Regina. She exudes maternal wisdom to novices, but also likes to let loose.
 
Sister Robert Anne (Mezzo/belter):
Once a child delinquent herself, this rough tough nun is a jokester, constantly challenging authority and constantly displays her lack of refinement.
 
Sister Mary Amnesia (Soprano AND belter): As the name suggests, she has lost her memory and does not know who she is except that she is a nun. She is spacey and incoherent, often slipping into displays inappropriate for a nun and has a puppet alter ego named Sister Mary Annette (ventriloquism and puppet experience are a plus but not required.) Must be able to sing in classical and country styles.
 
Sister Mary Leo (Mezzo/belter): Leo is the novice nun, still learning the way and coming to terms with her decision to give up “civilian” life. She is a ballerina and displays her talents through much of the show. She is also easily swayed to join in mischief.
