CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

16 Named Characters

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.

Gender: Female

Age: 25 to 35

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.

Gender: Female

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.

Sister Mary Patrick

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