Upcoming Auditions

Because the Palace Cultural Arts Association’s mission includes “fostering appreciation, education, and participation in the arts,” the PCAA Board of Directors and Management are committed to creating opportunities for people to experience the performing arts not just from the seat but from the stage as well. Future opportunities to participate in local Palace produced events are listed below.

SHOW SYNOPSIS: Nunsense A-Men! is basically the original “Nunsense” show with all of the characters
being portrayed by male musical comedy performers. Think of it as “Mrs. Doubtfire enters the Convent.”
Done totally seriously, this show is, to quote a critic, "no drag". A whole new layer of comedy surfaces
with lines like “The guys in the old neighborhood still can’t believe I became a nun!”

ROLES (ALL MALE PORTRAYING FEMALE NUNS):

MOTHER SUPERIOR MARY REGINA: A former circus performer who cannot resist the spotlight.
SISTER MARY HUBERT: Second in command, a competitive but dignified rival to Mother Superior
SISTER ROBERT ANNE: A streetwise nun from Brooklyn
SISTER MARY LEO: A novice who is determined to be the first ballerina nun
SISTER MARY AMNESIA: A wacky and childlike nun, who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her
head.
