Although Bridgeport,ct isn’t a huge metro city there are some great things to do here especially in the arts! I was looking for activities and events to attend here and I discovered that the Bridgeport Theater Company has remade “Dream Girls” musical that playing right now! I am very excited to see something of this stature being implemented into our community giving youth here a positive event to go to. Support our Local Talent Jan16 -Feb 1st and you can check out exact details on bridgeporttheatercompany.com ! Regular ticket prices: $28 regular / $23 senior / $18 student.

First a smash Broadway musical and then an award-winning motion picture, DREAMGIRLS captures the spirit and hope of Motown when a girl group from Chicago makes it big. In a business controlled by men, the female trio fights for recognition, fellowship and love as superstardom challenges their musical and cultural identity. A rich, glowing spectacle about the price of show-biz success, DREAMGIRLS sizzles with sparkling dance and R&B soul. Based on the story of Diana Ross’ rise to fame, the show has made stars of Tony Award winner Jennifer Holliday and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson. Featuring the hit songs “Dreamgirls,” “And I am Telling You I’m Not Going” and “One Night Only”.
