dreamgirls

While we were doing Hairspray last season, many patrons asked us, “When will you do Dreamgirls?” We just grinned because we knew this dynamite production was in the works.

It’s glitzy, sassy, flashy and filled with passion, soaring melodies and soul. Loosely inspired by the stories of Motown legends like Diana Ross and the Supremes, its message about striving to “get to the top” and the personal cost to stay there is universal.

Featuring an outstanding cast of vocalists, the show will sing directly to your heart and will leave you speechless. Dreamgirls a must-see musical experience that is drawing rave reviews from audiences and critics alike:

“A fantastic cast…everything works beautifully. If you don’t have tickets, get moving!” –Sunday News

“Spectacular and emotionally satisfying!” –BroadwayWorld.com

The Fulton Theatre produces area premiere of Dreamgirls

(Lancaster, PA)  The Fulton Theatre continues its 160th Anniversary Season with the flashy, bold show business musical Dreamgirls, representing the first time the show will be produced or presented in the Lancaster region. Dreamgirls is a co-production with Maine State Music Theatre and is directed and choreographed by the Fulton’s Artistic Director, Marc Robin. “This is a show I have wanted to produce at the Fulton since I first got here,” says Marc. “To me, it is the quintessential American rags to riches Cinderella story. Its themes of starting with nothing, but finding the way to the top through talent and perseverance are universal. Dreamgirls is a triumph of the human spirit.”

The plot focuses on the rise of the Dreamettes—loosely inspired by Motown stars such as Diana Ross and the Supremes. That trio of singers consists of Deena Jones, played by Britney Coleman who recently played the role in the Marriott Lincolnshire’s production of Dreamgirls, also directed by Marc Robin; Lorelle Robinson, played by Trista Dollison (Broadway: The Lion King, Porgy and Bess, Easter Mysteries); and perhaps the most iconic character from the musical, Effie, will be played by Bryonha Marie Parham, (Broadway: Porgy and Bess, Ragtime; extensive regional credits.) Effie is eventually replaced by singer Michelle Morris, played by Karissa Harris (Fulton: Hairspray; Disney Cruise Lines, numerous regional credits).

The cast also features Byron Glenn Willis as Curtis Taylor, Jr. (Marriott Lincolnshire, Goodman, numerous Chicago credits); Kelvin Roston, Jr. as James Thunder Early (Marriott Lincolnshire: Dreamgirls; Goodman Theatre, numerous Chicago credits); Eric B. Anthony as C.C. White (Fulton: Hairspray; Broadway: Mary Poppins, Hairspray, The Lion King); ; Paul-Jordan Jansen as Wayne; and Trinity P. Murdock as Marty.

The ensemble includes Brian Bohr, Steve Calzaretta, Antoinette Comer, Elgin Giles, Laurel Haitoff, Jeremiah Haley. Terance Reddick, Khadijah Rolle, Britton Smith and La’Nette Wallace and Tamara Young. 

The Music Director is Jason Wetzel, with scenic design by Robert Andrew Kovach, lighting designed by Paul Black and costumes designed by Kurt Alger.

Dreamgirls runs from April 23rd to May 12th. Regular ticket prices range from $20–$65 and are available through the Fulton Box Office at 717-397-7425 or online at www.thefulton.org.
