Spring 2021

Virtual Performance

Nominated for thirteen Tony’s and winning six, Dreamgirls tells the journey of the hopeful African-American R&B trio, The Dreamettes, fronted by Effie and her best friends Deena and Lorrell. Scouted for their vocal prowess and impressionability, “The Dreamettes” begin touring the country as backup singers while navigating the larger and ever-changing record industry scene. The group undergoes dynamic shifts in hopes of gaining a competitive edge eventually crossing genres and emerging into the spotlight as a more sensual and alluring group, “The Dreams”, with Deena at the helm and Effie parting ways.    

Making for a high-spirited show filled with triumphs, betrayal, stunning costumes and vocals, Dreamgirls captures the full swing of emotions as the group rises to stardom. This winter, join Hoof ’n’ Horn in Sheafer Lab Theater (in the Bryan Center) to meet your Dreamgirls.
