A popular Fakenham drama group has been given some celebrity inspiration ahead of their 50th anniversary show.

Fakenham and District Light Operatic Society (FADLOS) are gearing up to perform Sister Act The Musical in July.

Victoria Perryman who plays lead character Deloris in the FADLOS production was lucky enough to meet famous singer-songwriter Alexandra Burke, the Deloris in the touring production, at the Theatre Royal in Norwich.

The touring cast also all signed a good luck message to the FADLOS cast and wished them a heavenly good time.

The production based on the famous film of the same name featuring Whoopi Goldberg tell the story of nightclub singer Deloris Van Cartier who witnesses her boyfriend Curtis shooting an informant in the alleyway out the club where she sings.

Frightened and alone she goes to the police who put her in the only place on Earth Curtis wouldn't think to look - a very rundown, very strict Convent.

Although Deloris struggles to find her place she does make an impression with the choir and teaches the nuns how to boogie with hilarious consequences.
