See Dreamgirls at the Paramount Theatre
Saturday, September 24 , 12:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Let’s take it back to the 1960’s and join the Alumni Association at the Paramount Theatre for a matinee performance of Tony-nominated Dreamgirls. Risking it all for the American Dream, we will meet the Dreamettes, Effie, Deena and Lorrell, three women trying to break their way onto the music scene. When car salesman Curtis Taylor Jr. signs the three singers to a record label, he sets in motion a series of events that will forever change their lives, for better and for worse.
Before the show, enjoy a reception with alumni and friends complete with heavy appetizers, open bar, and some fun trivia (so brush up on your ISU and 1960’s knowledge).
