The Divine Musical Comedy, SISTER ACT is the feel-amazing smash hit that the New York Post calls “RIDICULOUSLY FUN,” and audiences are jumping to their feet in total agreement! Featuring original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar winner ALAN MENKEN (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), SISTER ACT tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, SISTER ACT is reason to REJOICE!

During each audition night, there will be 3 different parts to the audition process. You only have to attend 1 audition night, not all three, but are welcome to attend as many as you would like.
– Vocal Auditions:
Please be prepared to sing 16-32 measures of a vocal selection that you feel best showcases your talent, preferably in the R&B/Disco/Gospel style. This will be a closed audition with you only singing in front of key production staff members. Please make sure your music is clearly marked with stop and start points and any cuts. Sheet music must be in the key you will be singing (no transposition). A capella auditions are discouraged.
– Dance Auditions:
There will be a dance audition each night that will be mandatory for all cast parts. Please bring appropriate clothes and shoes for the auditions (no jeans, flip flops, etc)
– Read Through Auditions:
Each person auditioning will be asked to read through select scenes from the show. Selected scenes will be passed out on the night of your audition. Please focus on articulation, projection and show us your character!
Call backs will be conducted Wednesday night after the normal audition process for that evening is complete. This can include singing selections of songs from the show for specific roles and/or additional readings. If you are selected for a call back you will be provided the music selection.
