SISTER ACT - Deloris Van Cartier (Picture & Resume Req.)

Paul Russell Casting is accepting Pictures and Resumes from AEA African-American actors for SISTER ACT produced by Barter Theatre. Auditions by appointment only in New York City on January 19th.

DELORIS VAN CARTIER: African-American female. Mid 20s – mid 30s. Mezzo-Soprano. Sexy, sassy, feisty, friendly and funny diva with a caring heart. Actress must have great comedic timing and zinger wit. Uninhibited. Brassy, blunt charm with an emotional depth. Moves well. Raised in the hardscrabble of West Philly, Deloris—a gifted and ambitious singer—aspires to be a glamourous recording artist. When forced to hide in a financially foundering convent, as part of a witness protection program, she initially refuses to conform to the modest, conservative restrictions.  But from darkness she brings light to the Sisters and herself. Adapting, through her love for music married with showmanship, she turns a tuneless nun’s choir into a rousing, must-see-and-hear, joyous Mass. Vocal range top: F#5, bottom: E3. LEAD. Director: Paul Russell. Reh: 03/20. Open: 5/18. Close: 08/11. A: 01/19. Pay: $800/wk. AEA LORT D, plus RT transportation and housing.
