Vaudevillians bring a little Broadway to Surrey

Fundraising shows Nov. 10 at Surrey Arts Centre will benefit performing arts students.

The Vaudevillians present two shows Nov. 10 in Surrey to raise funds for a Douglas College bursary for performing arts students.

Music from 1930s New York stages will be brought to life next week as the Surrey-based Vaudevillians present their annual show benefiting budding performing artists.

The seniors entertainment troupe brings The Vaudevillians Hit Broadway to the Surrey Arts Centre stage for two performances on Nov. 10.

The ninth-annual event will once again support the Bursary for Performing Arts Students at Douglas College.

While the group, comprised of members ranging in age from 58 to 91, used to limit itself to pre-1930 material, the appeal of 1930s Broadway was irresistible.

There will be songs such as the Lullaby of Broadway, I’ve Got Rhythm and Give My Regards to Broadway featured, complemented by colourful costumes, dancing (choreographed by Sandra Green) and plenty of humour.

To date, $100,000 has been raised to help students in the performing arts and other charitable causes. Students will be presented with bursaries after the concert.

The Vaudevillians Hit Broadway takes place Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available online at tickets.surrey.ca or by calling 604-501-5566.
