The smash hit West End musical Dreamgirls is to have its Scottish premiere in Aberdeen.
The award-winning show will be at His Majesty’s Theatre for a two-week run from Tuesday November 10.
The musical, which features classic songs such as And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going, Listen and One Night Only, is coming to the Granite City as part of its first-ever UK tour.
Aberdeen Performing Arts chief executive Jane Spiers said: “This incredible show is a brand new production straight from the West End and we are honoured to be presenting the Scottish premiere at His Majesty’s Theatre in November.
“Dreamgirls really is one of the best new musicals of recent years.”
The show follows The Dreams – Effie, Lorrell and Deena – three talented young singers in the turbulent 1960s, a revolutionary time in American music history.
Dreamgirls follows the three friends on their rollercoaster ride through a world of fame and fortune. However, the ruthless realities of showbusiness test their friendships to the very limit.
The musical had its West End premiere at London’s Savoy Theatre in December 2016 to critical and audience acclaim.
It played to packed houses until its run ended last year, clearing the way for the much-anticipated UK tour.
It originally opened on Broadway in 1981, winning six Tony Awards.
In 2006 it was turned into an Oscar-winning film, starring Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx.
