 The Order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken take over a high school auditorium to hold a fundraising variety show to raise money to bury several sisters (who were accidentally poisoned by their cook). They must inter the nuns before the health inspector comes and finds the dead nuns in their freezer! Fraught with hilarity, both Catholic and otherwise, we watch as 5 nuns try to perform their planned performance amidst chaos and calamity.

 

 SISTER MARY REGINA, MOTHER SUPERIOR: Female, 60's (Range: B3-F5)

The head of the convent, she is respected greatly by the sisters. While she is strict, she has a hard time keeping the craziness of the convent at bay. She keeps her guard up in front of the nuns, but has an extroverted side. Part requires some very physical humor. The character may be played with an Irish accent.


SISTER MARY HUBERT, MISTRESS OF NOVICES: Female, 50's (Range: G3-F5) 

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: Female, Mid 30's (Range: G3-D5) 

Once a child delinquent herself, this rough tough nun is a jokester and constantly challenging authority. She speaks with a thick Brooklyn accent and constantly displays her lack of refinement.

 

SISTER MARY AMNESIA: Female, 30's (Range: Db4-C6) 

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. Must be able to sing in classical and country styles. She has a puppet alter ego named Sister Mary Annette (ventriloquism and puppet experience are a plus but not required).


SISTER MARY LEO: Female, Early 20's /Mid 30's (Range: G#3-G5)

 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.
