So when I was offered the chance to become part of the biggest musical to hit Glasgow this year I vowed to make the most of it.
Sister Act is the biggest nun-related show since The Sound Of Music.
In London it was seen by more than a million people, including singers Dannii Minogue and Leona Lewis and Prime Minister David Cameron.
There are versions on in Milan, Stuttgart, Paris and Amsterdam, and now it's on at the King's Theatre.
And with the set, costumes and other gear filling no less than seven mammoth trucks and cast and crew totalling 70, it is the largest touring show on the road.
It stars Michael Starke, best known for his role as Sinbad in television soap Brookside, and Denise Black, who played Coronation Street hairdresser Denise Osbourne, while the lead role is the amazing Cynthia Erivo as Delores.
The show was produced by Whoopi Goldberg, who starred in the original movie version of the story, which sees Delores hide out in a convent after witnessing a murder.
While she gets on the wrong side of the Mother Superior, she transforms the off-key choir, as well as the fortunes of the struggling church.
And I also leapt at the chance to become a nun on the run.
First, company manager Eamonn Byrne, 44, from Dublin, showed me around the set, which has a giant fibreglass Mary statue as its centrepiece.
But it is back stage where the biggest miracles take place.
Many of the cast of 30 play multiple roles. Eammon tells me some of the nuns even whip off their habits to become prostitutes.
Some cast members even have to wear up to four costumes – one on top of the other – for quick changes.
Extra outfits are kept for understudies and 'swings,' as the actors who step into any role at any point of the show are known.
"It is not unusual for us to lose a nun or two during the show", says Eammon. "They faint, or twist their ankle ..."
The tour even transports four washing machines and a tumble dryer. Plus, all the actors in the show wear specially made wigs worth up to £1000 each, which must cover their hair completely.
With that, it was my turn to take my holy orders.
I sent up a prayer as I was led to a dressing room, hoping I would not look too stupid.
Eammon helped me step into my habit, which I was thrilled to be told had once been worn by Patina Miller, the star of the original London production.
He then handed me a white 'balaclava,' and a long black tabard.
Then came a starched white collar, and finally, a wimple.
However, I ignored what Eammon said about the nuns in the show not wearing any make-up, and added some lipstick. I was not being seen without some slap.
Then it was time to take to the stage -
Under the theatre lights I was boiling hot. The top of the wimple was also digging into my forehead.
And because of all the fabric covering my ears, I couldn't hear very well, much to the amusement of my co-star Michael, who plays Monsignior O'Hara in the show.
The nun's life was harder than you would think, but as the cast started arriving for the matinee it was time to lose my habit.
But being a nun was holy fabulous, sister.
