Raven Symone who first came to prominence when a child star in 'The Cosby Show' is now all grown up and set to take part in one of her biggest roles to date, starring in the Broadway hit musical 'Sister Act' later this month. The play of course comes from the famous film of the same name which saw Whoopi Goldberg star as a club singer who becomes a nun in order to hide from trouble as part of a witness protection scheme.
The 26 year-old is taking over the role on March 27th, according to Associated Press and spoke of her excitement of being involved, admitting she was a huge fan of the production already. "I was definitely one of the audience members dancing in the aisles," she said. "I think it's a wonderfully scored and directed and written musical. I'm very excited to be part of this."
