DREAMGIRLS
STORY AND LYRICS BY TOM EYEN
MUSIC BY HENRY KRIEGER

DIRECTED BY SHIRLEY BASFIELD DUNLAP
MUSIC DIRECTION BY MELVIN N. MILES, JR.
CHOREOGRAPHY BY TORENS JOHNSON

Dreamgirls, the beloved musical, follows the moving, yet entertaining, journey of a 60s-style "girl group" called The Dreamettes on their 10-year rise from obscurity to superstardom.  This Tony Award-winning musical (13 nominations/6 wins) parallels the real-life story of Diana Ross and The Supremes using gospel, R&B, smooth pop, disco to explore themes of ambition, hope, transitions and betrayal, all set in the glamorous and competitive world of the entertainment industry. The Dreamettes' story gives us a "behind-the-scenes" view of their journey to becoming a superstars and major musical contributors to the American cultural lexicon.
