Deloris Van Cartier:  Female, 25-35, African American.  Aspiring disco diva with Donna Summer-like dreams.  Survival has made her cynical and tough, but as she works with the convent nuns, she finds joy and purpose.  Vocal range E3 – F#5.

 

Mother Superior:  Female, 50-70, All ethnicities.  Head of the convent.  Sarcastic, stiff and very protective of keeping her sisters from the outside world.  Vocal range D3 – E5.

 

Sister Mary Robert:  Female, 16-25, All ethnicities.  A postulant who was abandoned as a baby and raised in the convent.  She is shy and soft-spoken, but singing with Deloris helps her find her voice.  Vocal range F#3 – A5.

Sister Mary Lazarus:  Female, 50-70, All ethnicities.  A nun of the convent who heads the choir.  Deadpan and unwelcoming, but gets caught up in Deloris’s soul music.  Vocal range F3-B4.

 

Monsignor O’Hara:  Male, 45-60, All ethnicities.  Benevolent with an Irish twinkle in his eye.  Constantly concerned with the financial survival of the convent, he sees Deloris’s music as a path to the convent’s salvation.  Vocal Range E3 – G4.
 

Curtis Jackson:  Male, 30-40, African American.  Notorious club-owning gangster and Deloris’s boyfriend.  Narcissistic with sex appeal and charisma.  Dangerous and always on the verge of violence.  Vocal range A2 – Ab4.

 

Eddie Souther:  Male, 35-40, All ethnicities.  Desk clerk at the police station who was Deloris’s high school classmate.  Dreams of being a hero, but a bad case of nerves has earned him the nickname, “Sweaty Eddie,” particularly around his crus, Deloris.  Vocal range Ab2 – B4.

 

TJ:  Male, 21-30, African American.  Curtis’s nephew and one of his henchmen.  He is in a constant state of ignorant bliss.  Vocal range Db3 – Eb5
