Audition Preparation Suggestions for Nunsense

Many styles of dance are used in Nunsense. Although the dances are meant to look "amateurish", you do need to have at least a little dance experience.

Sister Mary Regina
a model Mother Superior, even if she is overweight. An outrageous, quick-witted soul who knows how to get a laugh. She tries to convince us she's strict.
Sister Mary Hubert
a kind person, understanding & diplomatic. Supposed to be dignified, but ready to kick up her heels with the slightest bit of encouragement.
Sister Robert Anne
a tough streetwise nun with a heart of gold. Can hit a baseball "out of the park".
Sister Mary Amnesia
The picture of innocence. She can't remember her past and so looks at each new day with a childlike joy.
Sister Mary Leo
A former professional dancer, always eager to display her talent. Young, impressionable, and easily led astray.
