A new adaptation of “Dreamgirls”, the 1981 Tony award-winning musical turned 2006 Oscar award-winning film, will be the opening production of DASH Center’s 2012-13 season.
With music by Henry Krieger and lyrics and book by Tom Eyen, “Dreamgirls” tells the story of an up-and-coming 1960’s girls singing group “The Dreams”. DASH Center’s production directed and choreographed by Jimmy Shields with assistance from Isiah Anderson Jr, features a phenomenal cast of singers, dancers, actors, and actresses: Candi Hall as Deena Jones, Alexandria Henderson as Lorrell Robinson, Carmen Brantley-Payne as Effie White, and Angelica Barksdale as Michelle Morris, with Charles Simmons as Curtis Taylor Jr.
