Sisters get ready to celebrate the dream with the new production of the Broadway smash hit, DREAMGIRLS.

The renewed stage musical/multimedia show shines with a talented cast, an emotional storyline and a powerful musical score that features many songs that were sadly missed in the 2006 motion picture release. So, even if you’ve seen the movie…you are in for a special treat!

DREAMGIRLS focuses on the life experiences of a sassy, sexy and soulful female vocal group in Chicago in the 1960’s known as the Dreams aka the Dreamettes.

The aspiring group, mimic their mentors – Dianna Ross and The Supremes – on every level, seeking fame and fortune in the tumultuous music industry.

The path is paved with heart-wrenching challenges and painful realties.

But don’t lose hope. My bet is on the gals every time. These willful women rise above it all!

Female empowerment and equality tower as the prevailing moral theme. But issues and subject matter focused on race, sex and personal power struggles heat up each scene.

DREAMGIRLS, winner of six Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards, is sure to inspire and excite your inner diva.

Show Date:Tuesday, May 21, 2013; 7:30 p.m.

Location:Times-Union Center’s Moran Theater; Jacksonville, Florida
