Closing Night of Dreamgirls at Broadhollow Theatre Company

1377290_1256920157668237_6038906794271631037_nBroadhollow Theatre Company performed their closing show of Dreamgirls at their Elmont location over the weekend. The show ran from February 6th through February 27th and was quite a hit.

Alicia Bagley played the full-figured lead singer, Effie White, who is accompanied Deena Jones and Lorrell Robinson to form the Dreamettes. Alicia says she is incredibly thankful for the opportunity to do such an amazing show. She has never seen the Broadway production but has seen the movie and aspired to fulfill the role of Effie as Jennifer Hudson did in the movie.

Steffy Jolin, who plays Lorrell Robinson, has been in many productions over the years! She recently did Footloose at the old Plainview location of the Cultural Arts Playhouse over the summer and strayed off to Broadhollow Theatre Company to audition for Dreamgirls. “When I heard about it I couldn’t pass up the opportunity” says Steffy. Her next show will be back at the Cultural Arts Playhouse in Syosset. She will be a Hotbox Girl in Guys and Dolls running March 18th through April 10th.
