(Seattle, WA) If you like musical, you don’t want to miss this- DREAMGIRLS. National Tour of the smash hit musical makes its Seattle premiere at the Paramount theatre from April 6th  to 11th .

Full of onstage joy and backstage drama, DREAMGIRLS tells the story of an up-and-coming,1960s singing girl group, and the triumphs and tribulations that come with fame and fortune. Hopeful talents Deena Jones, Lorrell Robinson and Effie White are performing as The Dreamettes when ambitious agent Curtis Taylor, Jr. discovers them. He lands them a job as backup singers for the soul and rock ‘n’ roll sensation James “Thunder” Early and begins to guide their quickly rising career. However, when the beautiful Deena emerges as the star of the group rather than the fullvoiced Effie, the girls are brought to personal and professional crossroads.

DREAMGIRLS is directed and choreographed by Robert Longbottom with co-choreography by Shane Sparks. The original Broadway production of DREAMGIRLS opened December 20, 1981, at the Imperial Theatre and won six Tony Awards and three Drama Desk Awards in 1982. It closed on Broadway August 11, 1985, after 1,521 performances. DREAMGIRLS was adapted into a motion picture by DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, and opened in December 2006. The film won two Academy Awards, five Golden Globes, and two Screen Actor’s Guild Awards in 2007 in addition to a Grammy Award for Best Song written for a Motion Picture (“Love You I Do”).
