SISTER ACT

Character Breakdown

 

Deloris Van Cartier:  An aspiring performer, trying to find both fame and a place in the world. When forced to hide in the convent, she initially refuses to embrace her new lifestyle but learns to embrace it when she works with the choir. Loud-mouthed, and sassy, but ultimately caring.

Mother Superior:  The head of the convent, sarcastic and a bit stiff. Extremely protective about keeping her sisters away from the outside world, which puts her in direct opposition to Deloris and her musical teachings.

Sister Mary Robert:  A postulant, abandoned as a baby and raised at the convent. Shy and soft-spoken, but singing with Deloris lets her find her voice. Her wallflower lifestyle has made her live a shell of a life.

Sister Mary Patrick:  A nun of the convent. Consistently perky, enthusiastic, and easily excitable.

Sister Mary Lazarus:  A nun of the convent and the head of the choir. Rather deadpan and the least welcoming of any of the nuns, but she gets caught up in Deloris’ soul music.

Monsignor O’Hara:  One of the heads of the convent. Constantly concerned with financial matters, though soul music surprisingly puts him in a different mood.

Curtis:  A club owner, notorious gangster, and Deloris’s boyfriend. Cocky and controlling, always on the verge of violence.

Eddie Souther:  The desk chief at the Philadelphia police station and a high school classmate of Deloris who helps get her into hiding. Faces a lot of nerves when under pressure, causing him to sweat profusely. He still yearns for Deloris after all these years, and dreams of being her hero.

TJ:  Curtis’s nephew and one of his thugs. Deft and cognizant of the fact, constantly in a state of ignorant bliss.

Joey (Bones):  One of Curtis’s thugs. Believes himself to be quite the ladies’ man.

Pablo:  One of Curtis’s thugs. A natural follower, constantly speaks in Spanish.

Sister Mary Martin-of-tours:  A nun of the convent. Clearly in her own world, but has her moments of surprising clarity.

Sister Mary Theresa:  A nun of the convent, the oldest of the group. Decrepit at a glance, but secretly packs a punch.

Michelle:  One of Deloris’s back-up singers. Lippy and always quick with a retort.

Tina:  One of Deloris’s back-up singers. A little dim and naive.

Ernie :  One of Curtis’s thugs. Initially thought to be a mindless yes-man, he turns out to be an undercover police informant.

Peter and the Starcatcher

Casting “Peter and the Starcatcher” a play.

Project description: “In this five-time Tony Award-winning play with music, actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters using their enormous talent, ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination. This swashbuckling grownup prequel to Peter Pan will have you hooked from the moment you let your imagination take flight.”

Casting Notes – All roles may be played by actors of any ethnicity or gender. All actors will double in roles. In the original Broadway cast, Grempkin / Mack / Fighting Prawn / Sanchez were played by one actor. The actor playing Mrs. Bumbrake doubled as Teacher. All actors serve variously as sailors, seamen, orphans, pirates, mermaids, Mollusks, ships, doors, scenery … and narrators.

TIME & PLACE

1885, The Docks of Portsmouth, The Decks and Holds Of Two Ships, And The Jungles And Shores Of Mollusk Island

PETER

Male, 18-25; A boy who doesn’t miss much. Nameless, homeless, and friendless at the beginning of the play and a hero by the end. A survivor. More than anything in the world, he wants a home and a family. If he could grow up, he’d fall for Molly in a big way. But it’ll never happen.

 

MOLLY ASTER

Female, 18-25; A true leader at a time when girls are mostly followers. Will risk everything for the sake of Doing Right. Curious, intelligent, beginning to feel things she doesn’t yet understand-romantic longings that revert to childish tantrums under pressure–because, after all, she’s a thirteen-year-old kid. She’ll be a great woman one day.

 

BLACK STACHE    

Male, 18+; Long after everyone else got out of the pirate business, Black Stache continues to terrorize the seven seas in search of a hero worthy of his villainy. Famous for his face foliage, he started shaving at age ten, had a bushy handlebar by eleven, and the blood of twenty crews on his hands by twelve. Heartless and hirsute, suspiciously well read, partial to the poetical and theatrical, and given to a ferocity from which no good shall ever spring

 

MRS. BUMBRAKE/ TEACHER

Male, 18+; Molly’s nanny. British to the bone. Still has enough of her girlish charm to turn a sailor’s head and leaven his dreams. Stiff in the lip, loose in the hip, fun on a ship.

 

SMEE

Male, 18+; dedicated first-mate to Black Stache; he is not the smartest guy on the crew, but is the quickest to respond to any orders that the captain issues. Bonus if actor can play ukulele

 

PRENTISS

Male, 18-25; Ambitious, hyper-articulate, logical; yearns to be a leader, even as he knows in his heart that he never shall be one. A bit of a blow hard with just the teeny-tiniest touch of cowardice

 

TED

Male, 18-25; Called “Tubby” by Prentiss, Ted is obsessed with food: the eating of, the fighting over, the dreaming about. A natural actor, an easy wit, perhaps a future poet.. The performer playing Ted must have a strong and natural balance of dramatic and comedic timing, an easy way with humor, without becoming a “cartoon”; inside his humor is a sense of longing, afraid of being alone. Bonus if actor can also play violin or viola

 

LORD LEONARD ASTER

Male, 18+; The very model of a Victorian English gentleman, loyal subject to the Queen, devoted father, faithful friend. Also, and not irrelevant to our story, Lord Aster is a Starcatcher-dedicated to protecting the Earth and all who dwell thereon from the awesome power of starstuff

 

CAPTAIN ROBERT FALCON SCOTT 

Male, 18+; Captain of Britain’s fastest frigate, the Wasp. Years later, he will lead an expeditionary team to the South Pole, freeze to death, and become the iconic British hero, Scott of the Antarctic

 

GREMPKIN/ FIGHTING PRAWN         

Male, 18+; The mean and malodorous schoolmaster of St. Norbert’s Orphanage for Lost Boys. Likes to keep his boys in the dark, as sunlight is known to feed rebellious notions, and on account of the preference in certain quarters for lads that are white and pasty

 

BILL SLANK/ HAWKING CLAM

Male, 18+; The Neverland’s vicious captain, without the skill or quality to lead anyone but himself, and always into disaster. A greedy bastard who’d sell his own mother for a ship to command and send boys to their doom for the favor of those who would use starstuff for personal gain, global domination, or worse. An orphan

 

ALF

Male, 18+; An old sea dog. Something about him appeals to the feminine sensibility-might be his bowlegs, his saucy gait, or his kind heart

Sanchez

Male, 18+; A hard-working Spanish or Mexican pirate, Sanchez has an identity crisis.
