Nun that got away 
Apologies for letting something this important slip under the cerysmatic Factory-dar, but it would appear that ex-Vanilla Sound Corps, ex-Happy Monday, X-Factor Rowetta Satchell has just completed a UK tour of The Songs Of Sister Act.

The Juxtaposed Production featured Rowetta (dressed in full nun regalia) starring alongside Three Degree Sheila Ferguson and had "the audience dancing in the aisles to songs including ‘Oh Happy Day’, ‘Joyful Joyful’, ‘Shout’ and ‘Aint No Mountain High Enough’."

Those dates in full:
Friday 1st February - Grand Theatre York
Saturday 2nd February - The Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow
Monday 4th February - Bristol Hippodrome
Wednesday 6th February - Alexandra Theatre Birmingham
Friday 8th February - Palace Theatre, Manchester
Saturday 9th February - The Grimsby Auditorium
Sunday 10th February - Sunderland Empire

"I can't remember the last time I was this excited about touring," Rowetta tells the Manchester Evening News, "I've decided to proper tour bus it with the choir, because I've not done that since the Happy Mondays."
