The Battle Creek Civic Theatre will be holding auditions for "Nunsense" on
Sunday, April 7th and Monday, April 8th at 6pm at St. Thomas Episcopal church located at 16 E. Van Buren Street.
Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.
Show dates will be Friday and Saturday, May 31st and June 1st at 7pm and Sunday, June 2nd at 2pm. Needed for the cast are five women of various ages for the main characters, additionally, men and woman of various ages are needed as a chorus and several musicians of varying types are also needed. Those auditioning need to come prepared to perform one song, cold read from the script and learn at least one dance combination.
