About the Chorus

The Broadway Chorus is unique among Vancouver theatrical troupes: we mount fully-staged musicals where the script is new but the songs have been heard before. Our specialty is of course songs from the Broadway stage: old songs, new songs, songs you've never heard before, and songs you want to sing again and again.


Since we're a "chorus," we emphasize the ensemble, not the leads. We do have solos, duets, and smaller group numbers, but the star of our show is definitely the Chorus itself, which typically performs 15 to 20 songs in a full-length production. Our shows are fast-moving, funny, and fabulous, and the passion and excitement we have for our material make our shows a real treat to experience.


The Chorus presents two shows per year—one in December and one in May or June—four days in a row. Very occasionally we present abbreviated concerts or are 'guest artists' at other variety shows, as when Anne Murray herself invited us on her Christmas special at the Orpheum.


Chorus members rehearse weekly on Tuesdays at 7:00pm from early January until the week prior to the May/June performance and from early September until the week prior to the December performance with the occasional optional weekend rehearsal. We rehearse in the large Main Hall at Shaughnessy Heights United Church, just west of Granville Street on West 33rd Avenue. Rehearsals last between two to three hours depending on how close to performance we are.

The Chorus was formed in 1999 by Ashley Lambert-Maberly, a composer/lyricist and head of Once Upon a Theatre Productions. Since that time Ashley has conceived and produced over 30 Broadway Chorus shows.
