12:00pm [12:00pm] Little Theatre of Manchester Lunchtime Lecture
On Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at Noon, local writer and historian David Garnes will lead an informative talk about Little Theatre’s upcoming production of the Motown Classic "Dreamgirls". Winner of six Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards. A sweeping and inspirational journey through 20th-century American popular music, "Dreamgirls" chronicles one Motown group’s rise from obscurity to super stardom. Through gospel, R&B, smooth pop, disco and more, this audience favorite features unforgettable hits by Academy Award nominee Henry Krieger – including “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” “One Night Only” and “Listen.” Little Theatre’s Lunchtime Lecture Series is offered the week before the opening night of each production. These popular conversations offer an opportunity to learn about the upcoming shows, providing background information about the play or musical, its production history and the playwright and other artists. These discussions are informal lecture-style with the opportunity to ask questions following the chat. Lunchtime Lectures are free of charge and need no reservations or tickets.
