“Dreamgirls,” a production that depicts the triumphs and tribulations that come with fame and fortune, continues Thursday at Footlite Musicals, 1847 N. Alabama St.
The story follows a young female singing trio from Chicago that gets its big break at an amateur competition and thus begins the heartbreaks of showbiz, love and music when they all collide in this six-time Tony Award-winning musical loosely based on The Supremes.
The show runs through May 21, with curtain times at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Admission prices Fridays-Sundays are $17 for youths 17 and under, $23 for adults; $10 for Thursday’s shows. Tickets can be reserved by calling 800-838-3006 or visiting www.footlite.org.
Vintage Movie Night Returns
Film historian Eric Grayson will screen “Danger on Wheels” and “The Great Rupert” at 8 p.m. Saturdays, May 13 and 20, respectively, at the Garfield Park Arts Center, 2450 Shelby St.
The first film, which stars Richard Arlen and Andy Devine, is about a reckless test driver (Arlen) who is working on a new engine that will help him win races.
The second movie stars Jimmy Durante and Terry Moore. The action revolves around a performing squirrel that – with lots of charm – accidentally helps two economically distressed families overcome their obstacles.
Admission to each film is $5; concessions are $1. Info: 317-327-7135.
