Cast Descriptions - Strong singing and movement required unless otherwise stated !
Playing ages are rough guides only !
Deloris Van Cartier
Mid-20s to mid-30s
A feisty, strong-willed, larger than life character. Curtis’ bit on the side. Brought up a Catholic and taught by nuns, she has rebelled against her upbringing. She has dreams of becoming the next big singing sensation, which Curtis keeps promising to make happen for her, but never will. She eventually finds what she has been seeking where she least expects it.
Late 40s and up
Haughty, well spoken, stickler for rules and routine with a tough exterior, but she is not so confident when alone with God. We see a softer side to her by the end of the show. She really doesn’t want Deloris in her convent.
Sister Mary Robert
A small, postulant nun. Very timid and quiet, until she eventually finds her ‘voice’. She hasn’t chosen to be a nun; she is only there because she knows nothing else.
Sister Mary Patrick
Mid 20s up
A large, bubbly, excitable, over the top, larger than life character. Very innocent and not at all worldly-wise; everyone’s friend.
Sister Mary Lazarus
Choir mistress who gets moved aside. Bit of a grump! Nothing fazes her, she takes everything in her stride, even rapping!
40s+ (non-singing role)
A friendly, good natured gentleman. Always bright and positive, even though his parish is almost non-existent and faces closure. He loves the change that Deloris brings to his church.
Mid-20s to 40, dependant on casting of Delores.
Confident, chilled out, gangster. He is always in control of the people around him, his actions and any situation he finds himself in. He is untouchable, or so he thinks.
Mid-20s to mid-30s, must be able to move well.
Police Officer – Totally uncool! Bit of a nerd, but there is a cool guy hidden inside him, waiting to get out! He is often downtrodden but takes everything in his stride and is a good cop.
Youngest of Curtis’ henchman and meant to be his nephew, which is the only reason he has the job! He is naïve, daft and childlike and easily manipulated. Finds humour in everything he can.
Curtis’ head henchman. Does what he is told without question. Thinks he is a cool ladies’ man, but he really isn’t!!
Curtis’ Hispanic henchman. He is quiet, moody and the toughest of the gangsters. Most of his dialogue is in Spanish. He is a slick smooth dude, but slow!
Michelle & Tina
Nightclub backing singers. Good time girls, been around the block a few times!!
Ernie (non singing role)
Curtis’ oldest henchman. He gets killed for grassing on Curtis to the police.
