DESCRIPTION



Yorktown Stage Kids is seeking talented teens and kids ages 8-18 for their LIVE production of Sister Act Jr this July! Production process: June 26-July 31. 

Based in Westchester, NY, Yorktown Stage Kids is a 4-week intensive program where performers rehearse and perform a full-scale production with our professional staff. Rehearsals work seamlessly with summer camp/class programs and are held from 4-7pm on weekdays and Saturdays 10-3pm. Performers are not called to each rehearsal and will receive a comprehensive schedule upon registration. 

SISTER ACT JR

Based on the hit 1992 film and Tony-nominated Broadway musical, Sister Act JR. is the feel-good musical comedy that will have audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors),

When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Seeking ALL roles.
YORKTOWN STAGE KIDS ENCOURAGES PERFORMERS OF ALL ETHNICITIES, GENDER IDENTITIES, AS WELL AS PERFORMERS WITH DISABILITIES, TO JOIN US IN BRINGING THE MAGIC OF THEATRE TO THE WESTCHESTER REGION! 

Deloris Van Cartier
A strong, street- wise aspiring singer who gets caught up with the wrong crowd. When she witnesses a crime involving her ex-boyfriend, she is put in witness protection – as a nun! Deloris is reluctant at first, but the more time she spends at the convent, the more she realizes that time with the sisters is exactly what she needed.

Curtis Jackson
To put it frankly, a complete jerk. He’s not only mean and dishonest, he’s also dangerous – and he’s got Deloris on his radar. 

Joey
The wise guy of Curtis’s group. He’s an upbeat charmer who is always ready with a joke – even though he’s one of Curtis’s criminals.

Vocal range bottom: D3

TJ
Not the brightest bulb in the bunch, and the audience is meant to have a few laughs at his expense. 

Pablo
The strong, silent type who definitely leans into his role as the muscle of the group. He has a few lines and sings some, but most importantly, he should make a great third member of the trio with Joey and TJ.

Eddie Souther
The quintessential good guy with a heart of gold. Though Eddie was overlooked by Deloris in high school, he never quite got over his crush on her, which results in a few awkwardly endearing moments throughout the show.

Mother Superior
Devoted leader of the convent. Her church and her sisters come before all else – and she’s not afraid to voice her opinion. Mother Superior means well and eventually comes around regarding Deloris.

Monsignor O'Hara
The charming spiritual leader of the Queen of Angels Cathedral. His bottom line is to save their church, and he will do anything to support the bottom line – including forcing Mother Superior to house Deloris. Monsignor O’Hara should have a good stage presence and a sense of comic timing.

Mary Patrick
A nun in the convent. She is an upbeat, over-the-top, enthusiastic person who is always looking on the bright side.

Mary Robert
A postulant and the youngest of the abbey’s inhabitants. Shy, soft- spoken, and a bit of a wallflower, she enjoys being a nun, but her friendship with Deloris lets her truly find her voice. Vocal range top: E5

Mary Lazarus
One of the older nuns at the convent, and she leads the choir. She is rather deadpan and not particularly welcoming to Deloris at first, though Deloris’s love of music eventually wins her over.

Mary Martin-Of-Tours
A nun who definitely exists in her own world.

Tina
One of Deloris’s backup singers.

One of Deloris’s backup singers.
