Open auditions for 'Nunsense A-Men' musical Aug. 2-3
The Hill Country Community Theatre is casting the musical comedy “Nunsense A-Men!" Auditions are 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 2 and 3, at the nonprofit theater, 4003 FM 2147 West in Cottonwood Shores.
Those auditioning will receive sides from the script for cold readings. Bring sheet music or a music track or be prepared to sing a cappella for the singing audition.
The theater's executive director, Mike Rademaekers, is directing. Les Young is the music director, and Kristi Stere is the choreographer.
“Nunsense A-Men!” brings all the hilarity and warmth from Dan Goggin’s original script and score of “Nunsense” with an amusing twist: The Little Sisters of Hoboken are played by men (think Mrs. Doubtfire enters the convent.) When Sister Julia accidentally poisons 52 sisters with her soup, the convent organizes a talent show fundraiser for their burials.
- SISTER MARY REGINA, male, baritone-bass — The Mother Superior of the Little Sisters of Hoboken. A feisty Sophie Tucker-type. Outrageous, quick-witted, and knows how to get a laugh. Tries to convince everyone she is strict, but her bark is worse than her bite. Can’t resist the spotlight.
- SISTER MARY HUBERT, male, baritone-tenor — Mistress of Novices and second in command, she always competes with the Mother Superior. Very kind; tries to be understanding and diplomatic. Always ready to kick up her heels.
- SISTER ROBERT ANNE, male, baritone-tenor — A streetwise, tough character from Brooklyn and a constant irritation source for the Mother Superior.
- SISTER MARY AMNESIA, male, tenor — Lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. The picture of innocence but a tad loopy. Can’t remember her past, so she looks at each day with childlike joy.
- SISTER MARY LEO, male, baritone-tenor — The novice who wants to be a ballerina. Was a professional dancer before entering the convent and is always eager to display her talent. Impressionable and young, easily led astray.
The production runs Sept. 24-Oct. 17 with performances at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. For more information, contact the theater at 830-693-2474 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
