The Little Sisters of Hoboken are in a bind. Their cook accidentally poisoned 52
of their sisters. They need to raise funds to bury the last two so they can get
them out of the freezer before the health inspector shows up. So, they decide to
put on a variety show and take over the set of “Grease” in the school’s gymnasium.
This show is full of hilarity, both Catholic and otherwise.
Briefly, the characters are as follows:
Sister Mary Regina – A spirited Mother Superior who can’t resist the spotlight; mezzo
Sister Mary Hubert – Mistress of the Novices, the second in command, always competing
with the Mother Superior; mezzo soprano with a gospel belt.
Sister Robert Ann – A streetwise, tough character from Brooklyn, a constant source
of irritation for the Mother Superior; mezzo soprano.
Sister Mary Amnesia – Lost her memory after a crucifix fell on her head, sweet, comedic,
should be able to sing classical and country styles; soprano.
Sister Mary Leo – Has entered the convent with the desire to become the first nun
ballerina; mezzo soprano.
