Uniontown

Auditions

The Asbury Theatre Guild of Uniontown will conduct auditions on Aug. 6 and 7 at Asbury United Methodist Church, corner of Beeson Avenue and Dunbar Street, Uniontown, for its October presentation of the musical comedy "Nunsense."

The Guild is seeking female actors/singers to fill the five roles of the nuns, who are affectionately known as the Little Sisters of Hoboken, in this critically acclaimed musical by Dan Goggin. The characters are as follows: Sister Mary Regina, Mother Superior -- a feisty Sophie Tucker-type who can't resist the spotlight; Sister Mary Hubert, mistress of novices -- the second in command, she is always competing with the Mother Superior; Sister Roberta Anne -- a street wise tough character from Brooklyn, a constant source of aggravation for the Mother Superior; Sister Mary Amnesia -- this nun lost her memory after a crucifix fell on her head, she is very sweet; Sister Mary Leo -- the novice, who has entered the convent with the firm desire to become the first nun ballerina (must be a dancer).

All nuns must be able to sing. Those auditioning are asked to come prepared to sing a ballad and an upbeat song. Please bring sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. Call 724-557-1119 to schedule an audition time for either Wednesday or Thursday. Auditions will begin at 7 each evening.

"Nunsense" is slated to be performed by the Asbury Theatre Guild on Oct. 3 to 5 as the first event of the 2003-04 season of the Asbury Festival Recital Series. Rehearsals will begin in late August.
