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.

Age: 25 to 35

Vocal range top: F#5

Vocal range bottom: E3

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

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.

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

A nun of the convent. Clearly in her own world, but has her moments of surprising clarity.

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