Seniors troupe hits centre stage for students

The Vaudevillians present two upcoming performances at the Surrey Arts Centre in support of a student bursary.

The Vaudevillians present Vintage Vaudeville Nov. 14 and 15.

B.C.’s number one seniors entertainment troupe returns to the Surrey Arts Centre stage next month for two performances of Vintage Vaudeville.

This is the 12th year The Vaudevillians have appeared at the venue in support of a bursary for performing arts students at Douglas College, assisting a total of 27 students so far.

Both performances – Nov. 14 and 15 – are 2 p.m. matinees.

As of 2015, the group has raised more than $96,000 towards an endowment fund with the Vancouver Foundation, and this year, the Surrey-based performers hope to top $100,000.

This year’s show – designed, as always, to appeal to an all-ages crowd – will explore the Vaudeville tradition through some of the most popular numbers of previous years, plus a few more favourites that audiences will remember, along with toe-tapping dances, humour and costumes.

Tickets are $22 and available at the box office by calling 604-501-5566.
