SISTER Act, the classic 1992 musical comedy starring Whoopi Goldberg, is the latest film to receive the ‘live cinema’ treatment with the ‘Sister Act Live Choir’ arriving at Cheltenham Town Hall on October 28.

Presented by Amacoast Cinema, Sister Act Live Choir will boast a choir made up of 35 gospel singers and full band, as they accompany the on screen nuns with live performances of songs from the film soundtrack.

Founder, Dele Aro, said: “We are delighted to be touring this powerful and uplifting live cinema experience."

Sister Act tells the hilarious story of Vegas lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier (played by Whoopi Goldberg), who after witnessing a murder at the hands of her boyfriend has to enter witness protection to avoid a similar fate.

She turns to the one place that she hopes he will never look - a Convent.

Disguised as a nun Deloris woefully tries to adopt her new lifestyle and after several false starts, she finally finds her voice at the heart of the church choir.

Show Choir director Lovedale Harrison said: “Whether you’re a Sister Act fan or not, the soundtrack is amazing and the nuns sing with so much soul.”

Sister Act Live Choir includes live performances of original film soundtrack favourites such as ‘Hail Holy Queen’, ‘My Guy (My God)’ and ‘I Will Follow Him’.
