Stray Dog Theatre (SDT) is holding non-Equity auditions for their upcoming production of Dreamgirls. As always, Stray Dog Theatre honors diversity and non-traditional casting practices.
Music by Henry Krieger / Book and Lyrics by Tom Eyen
Journey back to a time in musical history when rhythm and blues weren’t everything, they were the only thing. In the swinging 60s, the Dreamettes, led by the powerful Effie White, embark on an R&B music career that leads them across the country. Romantic entanglements, Effie’s weight, racism, and the arrival of a fresh new sound in the 70s make this show biz musical a thrilling hit.
Performances: April 4-20, 2019
First rehearsal: February 17, 2019
Please Note: The roles of EFFIE MELODY WHITE, DEENA JONES, CURTIS TAYLOR, JAMES “THUNDER” EARLY, C.C. WHITE, and MARTY MADISON have been cast. Any actor offered ensemble will be covering many roles in the show including featured singing and dance roles.
