Rainbow Chorus brings Broadway to Guelph stage

The Rainbow Chorus, the Waterloo Wellington Chorus of Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals and Friends, is presenting the first concert in its 18th season on Jan. 28.

Rainbow and Broadway is a celebration of Broadway musicals and features a diverse selection of songs from such well-loved productions as West Side Story, Man of La Mancha, Rent, Hair, Grease, Wicked and many others.

Board member Bonnie Lesky said the chorus was looking for a program that would highlight the talent of individual chorus members, and also be fun to both produce and attend.

“We want every Chorus concert to resonate with our audience,” Lesky said. “But this time we wanted something light and fun. We think this selection of Broadway music does that”.

This performance is under the direction of new musical co-directors Brenda Schneider Martin and Heather Morris, who have years of musical theatre experience. 

Rainbow and Broadway takes place on Jan. 28 at the Harcourt United Church, 87 Dean Avenue in Guelph. The show begins at 8pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, seniors and students ($20 at the door) and $5 for children under 12.

Advance tickets are available at the Guelph Artisans Store, Out on the Shelf,   Ground Floor Music, OPUS II in Kitchener or by calling 519-829-2225. Purchase tickets online at rainbowchorus.ca.
