Show synopsis: 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):
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 is may be played with an
Irish accent. Vocal part: mezzo/belter.
Sister Mary Hubert:
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. Vocal part: Mezzo/
Sister Robert Anne:
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.
Vocal part: Mezzo/belter
Sister Mary Amnesia:
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. Vocal part: Soprano AND belter
Sister Mary Leo:
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. Vocal part: mezzo/belter
