Dreamgirls is a 2006 American musical drama film based on the stage musical. In early 1960s Detroit, Curtis Taylor, Jr. signs an R&B trio of young women, the Dreamettes, and takes them from backup singers to headliners, all while establishing his own record label and indulging in wheeling and dealing. Personal struggles reign as plus-sized, big-voiced lead singer Effie is phased out to allow softer-voiced looker Deena Jones to front the trio. How long will Curtis keep Deena and the Dreams at the top, and will Effie ever get her due? With an all-star cast that includes Jennifer Hudson, Beyoncé, Anika Noni Rose, Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy, and Danny Glover, this film is 130 minutes and rated PG-13.

The series will conclude with The Phantom of the Opera on March 11. For more information, please contact the Suffolk Visitor Center at 757-514-4130 or log onto www.VisitSuffolkVa.com for details.
