The Supreme Dreams, three gorgeous girls with fabulous voices, retro costumes and groovy dance moves, bring back the hit songs of the 60s, 70s and Disco.
This energetic and popular show has toured to Far North Queensland, headlined at the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, stormed the stage at the Princess Theatre in Brisbane, featured at the 2014 Adelaide Fringe Festival and sold out at the Redcliffe Cultural Centre.
Think Martha and the Vandellas, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner and The Supremes and then you’ll start humming the songs that made these legends: Baby Love, Nowhere to Run, You Can’t Hurry Love and My Guy always gets the audience Dancin’ in the Streets!
Take great songs that are adored by baby boomers, add three distinct characters, some comedy and a dash of audience participation, and you have The Supreme Dreams. Tammi, Cindy and Kiki are not even rivals when it comes to men! Tammi has already found her man, Cindy falls in love regularly and Kiki is still looking.
In this fully costumed and choreographed 2 hour show The Supreme Dreams use every opportunity to get amongst their audience and get them up dancing.

The experience and skills gained from this series have been put to great use in producing many other events and, thereby, providing performance opportunities for young performers.
Unique Selling Point
The Supreme Dreams is one of the few shows that is an all female cast celebrating the music of the 60s and 70s. And these girls can both sing and dance to a very high standard.
Through their experiences of audiences in Far North Queensland, Toowoomba, Brisbane and the Adelaide Fringe Festival, The Supreme Dreams quickly engage with their audiences so everyone has fun. . People who were in their teens or 20s during the 60s and 70s recognise and love this music and are especially quick to join in with the singing and dancing.
It's a feel good show!

The Supreme Dreams are keen to provide Workshops.
In terms of general health, group singing (across all ages) has physical benefits as well as psychological and social. This research and other studies, including scans of the brain indicate that: • The brain is very active when singing (Brain gym!); • Concentrated breathing increases blood flow to the brain and body (calms the nerves!); • Singing reduces cortisol, the stress hormone (relieves stress!); and • Group singing increases the release of oxytocin, which is linked to social bonding (community!). Studies also show that singing is associated with dopamine activity, i.e. the body’s “reward” system. Any action associated with your favourite music will receive the same dopamine reward.
The Supreme Dreams would love to work with the local health and social networks in the community to to organise special group singing or dancing or singing and dancing sessions.
The tour leader is also a member of the Australian National Association for Teachers of Singing and can provide specialist pedagogical training to regional singing teachers.
