The Arts Club Theatre Company presents Dreamgirls from May 9th to July 7th, 2013 at the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage.

Full of onstage joy and backstage drama, the musical Dreamgirls tells the rags-to-riches tale of a 1960s girl group, loosely based on The Supremes. Young, black, and with talent to burn, the hopeful divas Effie, Deena, and Lorrell fantasize about playing the Apollo Theater. After getting their big break, The Dreamettes seem unstoppable—until rivalry and betrayal enter the group. Share their elation and tribulations on the road to stardom, told through the unforgettable sounds of Motown.

Dreamgirls will run Tuesdays at 7:30 pm, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8:00pm, and Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00pm. Tickets are $29 to $70, inclusive of taxes and fees. Special events for this production include Sunday Coffee Talks (May 19th at 1:00pm); Wednesday High Teas (May 22nd at 1:00pm); Talk Back Tuesdays (May 28th); and VocalEye live audio description (June 2nd at 2:00pm).

Directed by Bill Millerd, eight shows are already sold out for this Motown Musical but I have a pair of tickets to give away this month. Here’s how you can win your way into this show:
