"Dreamgirls" at Village Theatre
(Village Theatre)

THEATRE

It’s been a good year for Village Theatre presenting a great mix of musicals and plays for the 2016-2017 season and to finish it up, they will end thing on a high note this spring and summer with Dreamgirls. Set in the 1960’s the award-winning musical will give audiences a look behind the scenes of the 1960s entertainment business.

“I am so excited to be doing such an epic show with some of the most amazing people I’ve ever worked with,” says director, Steve Tomkins. “The whole audition process was just wonderful, as each person came into the room and blew the roof off. I can’t wait for opening night, because this cast is just going to send it through the roof again. They are truly outstanding.”

Headlining the show is Angela Birchett who comes straight from Broadway’s The Color Purple. She will be joined by Lauren Du Pree, Alexandria Henderson, John Devereaux, Nathaniel Tenebaum, Charles Simmons, Ty Willis and Joell Weil. Experience all the onstage joy and backstage drama as an up-and-coming girl group learns hard lessons about love, trust, and what it takes to get to the top.
