Deloris Van Cartier An aspiring African American 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. Age: 25 to 35. Vocal range top: F#5. Vocal range bottom: E3. Hilarious, commanding, with soaring belt vocals.
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. Age: 50 to 70. Vocal range top: E5. Vocal range bottom: D3
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. Age: 16 to 25. Vocal range top: A5. Vocal range bottom: F#3
Sister Mary Patrick A nun of the convent. Consistently perky, enthusiastic, and easily excitable. Age: 35 to 50
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’s soul music. Age: 50 to 70. Vocal range top: B4. Vocal range bottom: F3
Monsignor O’Hara (ROLE HAS BEEN CAST)
Curtis A club owner, notorious gangster, and Deloris’s boyfriend. Cocky and controlling, always on the verge of violence. Age: 30 to 40. Vocal range top: Ab4. Vocal range bottom: A2
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. Age: 25 to 35. Vocal range top: B4. Vocal range bottom: Ab2
Tj Curtis’s nephew and one of his thugs. Deft and cognizant of the fact, constantly in a state of ignorant bliss. Age: 16 to 30. Vocal range top: Eb5. Vocal range bottom: Db3

Pablo One of Curtis’s thugs. A natural follower, constantly speaks in Spanish. Age: 25 to 40. Vocal range top: F5. Vocal range bottom: C4
Sister Mary Martin-of-tours A nun of the convent. Clearly in her own world, but has her moments of surprising clarity. Age: 40 to 60.
Sister Mary Theresa A nun of the convent, the oldest of the group. Decrepit at a glance, but secretly packs a punch. Age: 60 to 70
Michelle One of Deloris’s back-up singers. Lippy and always quick with a retort. Age: 20 to 30. Vocal range top: F5. Vocal range bottom: Bb3
Tina One of Deloris’s back-up singers. A little thick and naive. Age: 20 to 30.Vocal range top: F5. Vocal range bottom: Ab3
