    Whoopi Goldberg to join Sister Act The Musical


    by ODN


    Whoopi Goldberg is joining the cast of Sister Act The Musical, the stage show of her 1992 hit film.

    Last year at the launch of the theatre production, which she co-produced, the actress and comedianne ruled out appearing in the show at the London Palladium.

    "No I'm not going to be in anything on stage," the 54-year-old declared.

    However it seems she has had a change of heart and will now join the musical for a three week stint in August.

    Goldberg will not reprise her role as show girl and cabaret star Deloris van Cartier. Instead she will take over from Sheila Hancock as the Mother Superior.
