Dreams Come True with ‘Dreamgirls’ 2015

The 2015 Sheldon College Musical ‘Dreamgirls’ really was a dream come true for the talented cast and crew who wowed audiences over the recent season at Redland Performing Arts Centre. Over 150 student singers, actors and dancers were ably supported by over 60 musicians, lighting, media, AV and backstage crew as they brought to life the story of ‘The Dreams’ which is centred around the rise of Motown music and the famous girl groups of the 1960’s.

Student performers were challenged to sing and act beyond their years to bring the adult characters to life and their performances saw standing ovations from the sold out crowds. Special guests from the Arts industries and tertiary sector also echoed the audience’s feeling that the 2015 production was the best ever for Sheldon College. A huge thank you to all of the parent and alumni volunteers who gave their time and energy to the production. We would also like to thank the Sheldon College staff who guided and mentored the students to greatness on stage.

Congratulations to all for making dreams come true.


Dreamgirls Musical 2015

The Australian School of the Arts are pleased to announce that their 2015 Musical will be Dreamgirls.

Set in the turbulent early 1960s to mid-70s, the tale follows the rise of a trio of women, Effie, Deena and Lorrell, who have formed a promising girl group called The Dreamettes. At a talent competition, they are discovered by an ambitious manager named Curtis Taylor, Jr., who offers them the opportunity of a lifetime: to become the back-up singers for headliner James "Thunder" Early. Curtis gradually takes control of the girls' look and sound, eventually giving them their own shot in the spotlight as The Dreams. That spotlight, however, begins to narrow in on Deena, finally pushing the less attractive Effie out altogether. Though the Dreams become a cross-over phenomenon, they soon realize that the cost of fame and fortune may be higher than they ever imagined.

All performances will presented at the Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) and tickets will go on general sale on Monday 30 March.
