Auditions for The Divine Sister

June 29, 2019, 3:30 PM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 3:30 PM, repeating until June 30, 2019

The Divine Sister is an outrageous comic homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns. Evoking such films as The Song of Bernadette, The Bells of St. Mary's, The Singing Nun, and Agnes of God, The Divine Sister tells the story of St. Veronica's indomitable Mother Superior who is determined to build a new school for her Pittsburgh convent. Along the way, she has to deal with a young postulant who is experiencing "visions," sexual hysteria among her nuns, a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious nun visiting from the Mother House in Berlin, and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows. This madcap trip through Hollywood religiosity evokes the wildly comic but affectionately observed theatrical style of the creator of Die, Mommie, Die! and Psycho Beach Party.

Auditions will be held June 29 and 30 at 3:30 p.m. and will consist of cold readings from the script. The show will have four performances, September 5 - 8, 2019.
