Viewers can expect spine-tingling vocals from an abundance of songs including 'And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going', 'Listen', 'I Am Changing' and 'One Night Only'.

The UK Tour of Dreamgirls is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Greenleaf Productions, Fakston Productions, Rupert Gavin, Griffin Dohr, Just for Laughs Theatricals in association with Glass Half Full Productions, 1001 Nights Productions, Eighth Sea Incorporated.
