Go sister, soul sister, go sister, oh sister. Oh what an act for this delightful cast for the stage version of Whoopi Goldberg's fabulously funny screen belter Sister Act, at Windsor's Theatre Royal WRITES PAUL THOMAS.

Good voices, an outstanding performance from lead Sian Gentle-Green, and an ensemble that reaches out to the audience brings a wonder to the weeks before Christmas, writes Paul Thomas.

Sister Act is great entertainment, soulful, Motown-ish and hilarious.

It's the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a disco diva, whose life takes an unexpected turn when she witnesses a murder.

For her own safety, she bis put into a witness protection programme in a convent, disguised as a nun.

The convent choir is a shambles, but with her disco ability she transforms the group and in the meantime finds her own voice.

Raise you voices and sing Hallelujah for this uplifting musical treat.

University Centre Weston's production of this smash musical is a delight.

Gentle-Green bursts with energy as Deloris, an electric spark within a spectrum of colourful singing.

The nuns are just so much more than black and white with superb songs, including Here Within These Walls, Raise Your Voice, Take Me To Heaven, Sister Act and Spread The Love Around.

Whether you are the mother superior or just a novice, ditch the tellybox and get down to the royal to say your prayers.

Sister Act, Theatre Royal Windsor, until Saturday, November 18. Box office: 01753 853888 or www.theatreroyal.windsor.co.uk
