Don't miss Amber Riley - leaving 18th November

Don't miss this musical biopic based on the story of The Supremes. The musical first hit the Broadway stage in 1981 and saw 2005 enjoyed an adaptation to the big screen starring Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Hudson and Anika Noni-Rose.

What is it about?

Hopeful talents Deena Jones, Lorrell Robinson and Effie White are performing as "The Dreamettes" when ambitious agent Curtis Taylor, Jr. discovers them.

After quickly landing them a job as backup singers for the soul and rock 'n roll sensation James "Thunder" Early he begins to guide their quickly rising career, and dictates their every move. However, when the beautiful Deena emerges as the star of the group rather than the full-voiced Effie, the girls' rivalry leads to a personal and professional crossroads for the trio.

With a powerful score and thought-provoking story, Dreamgirls has touched audiences all the way from 1980s Broadway to 21st century Hollywood, introducing some legendary breakthrough performances along the way.
