Dreamgirls will come to Seattle April 6-11 at the Paramount Theatre.

The musical 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. However, when the beautiful Deena emerges as the star of the group rather than the full-voiced Effie, the girls are brought to personal and professional crossroads.

Tickets range from $27 to $75 and are available on-line at tickets.com, stgpresents.org or BroadwayAcrossAmerica.com.
