Valley Performing Arts Center is preparing for its first full-scale musical ever

Though it's been around for five seasons, Valley Performing Arts Center is finally giving its audience what they've long asked for: a full-scale musical. And if you're one of the people who has been waiting for this moment forever, you better get your tickets soon because the Northridge theater will only be presenting Dreamgirls for four performances, May 6-8.

"One of the largest requests from our audience is for full scale musical theatre at Valley Performing Arts Center and I am thrilled to be inaugurating our musical theatre presentations by working with McCoy Rigby Entertainment for the first time to bring their new production of Dreamgirls to our theatre.  I can’t wait to hear these large powerful voices fill our Great Hall," said Thor Steingraber, executive director of Valley Performing Arts Center.  "A musical about show business is the perfect way to commence bringing Broadway musicals to the Valley."

In case you're somehow unaware of the premise of the show, it revolves around an up-and-coming girl group in the 1960s—yep, there were girl groups before Destiny's Child and Spice Girls—and the trials and tribulations that come with fame. 

The performances will come straight off the heels of the production's run at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, happening now through April 17, and will feature the same cast and performers. 

Tickets for the Valley Performing Arts Center production are $60-$99 and can be purchased here. Show times are 8pm Friday, May 6; 3 and 8pm Saturday, May 7; and 3pm Sunday, May 8.
