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

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.
