Dreamgirls transports us to a time in musical history when rhythm and blues blended with other styles of popular music to create a new American sound. Spanning from gospel, R&B, and smooth pop to the arrival of disco, this musical mirrors the glamorous and electrifying rise of groups like The Supremes, The Marvelettes, The Temptations and The Shirelles. Through exploring themes of ambition, hope and betrayal, Dreamgirls reveals the behind-the-scenes reality of the competitive entertainment industry, and how women not only survived but redefined the phenomenal “dream.” Dreamgirls was the winner of six Tony Awards, including Jennifer Holliday for Best Actress, and winner of the Academy Award for Jennifer Hudson.

The History of Gospel Music featuring photos of the artist line up

The HOGM is a narrated musical that takes you on a Journey Through Time in Music.  It tells the story of how Gospel Music began from slavery times all the way through today.  Songs used by slaves to communicate movement to freedom; songs used by our ancestors to help them get through the pain and turmoil they were suffering; songs that tell of our deliverance from bondage; songs that ignite our spirit in the knowledge of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ; songs that capture the attention of our youth today; songs that give the answer to the question ‘Why do We Sing’?

This musical showcases the talents of local residents who have a passion to use their voices to magnify the Lord.  A cast representing more than 15 local churches, coming together with one purpose, to share the true meaning of the Gospel through song; to help us all understand where Gospel music was birthed from and how it continues to be an integral part of our lives as well as our struggles still today.

This is an event for the entire family to enjoy.

Gregory Porter’s powerful baritone shows out on recordings like  “Concorde,” the opening track of 2020’s Grammy-nominated All Rise — an album All Music called “buoyantly sophisticated.”

 But to truly experience Porter and his talent, his live performances are essential. One review of his recent show at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival in the UK described the performance as captivating, and the night as “an hour and a half of magical happiness.”

Astronauts and royalty alike agree: Porter provided a rendition of “America the Beautiful” during the launch of NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover in 2020, as well as a performance for Queen Elizabeth during the Queen’s Jubilee celebration.
