I’m headed to work today and listening to the radio. I hear some familiar music. It’s a song from the motion picture Dream Girls.I listen to the announcer. Dream Girls has been adapted into a play. Cool. Then I hear its
coming to Tuscaloosa, no its in Tuscaloosa at the Bama Theatre. Extra cool. Now I’m really interested. Then I realize, its playing at the Bama Theatre this weekend.
I’m sad and excited at the same time. I really want to go. I think this will be a great show to watch. I’d love to take my family. However it’s short notice and I haven’t made any arrangements to go. Ho-hum.
Fast forward a few hours and an old highschool friend hits me up on Facebook.It’s a fellow Thespian from yester-year, Anthony Noland. Small talk-small talk-then BAM! He invites me to see Dream Girls! He’s actually acting in the play. Wow! My highschool friend-whom I’ve had the honor of sharing the stage with, someone I’ve won awards with-is actually in the musical Dream Girls! Call me weird, but I get uber excited about this kinda stuff.
It may sound trivial to some. But I will admit, I love theatre, particularly musical theatre. And I am always interested to see how a director and/actors can adapt a screen play to a stage play or vice versa. I wanted to extend and invitation to you my friends, family, followers. The cost of admission is $20/Adults and $16/Children. This is a production of the Actors Charitable Theatre of Tuscaloosa.
Sunday is 2:00 < I’m going to this showing tomorrow!
Monday & Tuesday at 7:30
