The West End smash hit, Dreamgirls, arrives at Norwich Theatre Royal next week and runs between 31st May and 11th June. Expect lots of glitz, glam and epic songs. You are not going to want to miss this!
The show follows The Dreams – Effie, Lorrell and Deena – three talented young singers in the turbulent 1960s, a revolutionary time in American music history. The trio rise from the backstreets to fame and success. Their story features the glamour of show business, but doesn’t shy away from the darker issues as friendship and loyalties are pushed to the limit by the ruthless music industry.
Dreamgirls is about music and the show-stopping, original songs, featuring the classics ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’, ‘Listen’, ‘I Am Changing’ and ‘One Night Only’.
Dreamgirls stars Nicole Raquel Dennis as Effie White. Nicole appeared as a finalist on ITV’s The Voice in 2019. Sharlene Hector will be performing the iconic role of Effie White at certain performances. The show also stars Natalie Kassanga as Deena Jones, Paige Peddie as Lorrell Robinson, Dom Hartley-Harris as Curtis Taylor Jr., Brandon Lee Sears as Jimmy Early, Shem Omari James as C.C. White, Jo Servi as Marty and Brianna Ogunbawo as Michelle Morris.
In 2006, Dreamgirls was adapted into an Oscar-winning film starring Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy, and Jamie Foxx, which gained a new legion of fans.
This award winning production is Directed and Choreographed by Olivier® and Tony® Award winning Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Mean Girls, Disney’s Aladdin and Something Rotten!), with Set and Costume Design by Tim Hatley, Lighting Design by Hugh Vanstone, Sound Design by Richard Brooker, Hair Design by Josh Marquette and Music Supervision by Nick Finlow.
