Dreamgirls Make Guest Appearance at Ben & Jerry's

Duke Ellington School of the Arts is putting on a production of Dreamgirls in December. As part of the ramp-up to opening night, members of the cast posed for pictures in Georgetown.

If you walked past Wednesday afternoon, you might have met a dreamgirl. Three members of the cast from the production of Dreamgirls greeted customers at the icecream shop to spread the word.

In a partnership with the school, Ben & Jerry's gave away ice cream to anyone who would pose for a picture with "The Dreams" and then post it Facebook or Twitter. The all-school collaborative project will raise funds to support arts instruction.

Just another example of the caliber of talent at Ellington, the production will feature a special appearance by original Dreamgirl Jennifer Holliday on Dec. 9.

The show runs from Dec. 2 through Dec. 18. Check out an interview with show director Lynda Gravatt (recorded and edited by Ellington students). Buy tickets here.
