Some interesting information just came across my desk and I think many of you will be interested in seeing this show! An exciting TC Williams Drama Department production of “Dreamgirls” will open next weekend and will feature such song favorites as “One Night Only” and “And I’m Telling You” among other Motown, rhythm and blues and pop favorites. The show follows the career of the girl group, The Dreams, as they climb the Billboard charts into stardom during the 1960s.
This engrossing tale of family, ambition, and the triumph of true fulfillment over the seductive lure of fame and fortune will be led by Student Director Ben Ruschell, Student Stage Manager Julia Ruffino, and Student Choreographer Jasselene Paz.
The original “Dreamgirls” Broadway Production was directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett, with book and lyrics by Tom Eyen and music by Henry Krieger.
