Norwich Theatre Royal’s Sister Act record attempt falls short
Norwich Theatre Royal was in need of a little divine intervention this evening after its attempt to break the world record for the largest number of people dressed as nuns in one place failed.
Just 120 sisters – and brothers – took part in the challenge leaving it more than 130 short of the 251-nun target.
John Bultitude, Theatre Royal spokesman, said: 'We're a little disappointed we couldn't do it. We could have done with a little divine intervention.
'It was lots of fun and those people who did take part put in a lot of effort.'
The Rt Rev Graham James, Bishop of Norwich, was the adjudicator for the record attempt and arrived with The Ven Jan McFarlane, Archdeacon of Norwich, who was dressed as a nun. She said: 'It was frighteningly easy to find a habit. I thought about borrowing a real one but decided to get my own. I may have missed my true calling.'
