The Aeolian Singers

Babes on Broadway

Babes on Broadway
...and ruby slippers, too...
Babes on Broadway is an original show created for the Aeolian Singers by retired music educator, Eleanor Hall. Featuring many great numbers from your favorite Broadway musicals, Babes includes show tunes from the early years like Oklahoma and more recent shows like Rent and A Chorus Line.

The show features soloists from the choir and a storyline which takes the audience through the history of the musical with a cast inspired by Broadway’s famous female characters (Velma and Roxy from Chicago, Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz and the very green Elfie from Wicked). It’s a fun performance of great music for all ages featuring everything from rollicking numbers like Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat from Guys and Dolls to the moving Seasons of Love from Rent.

Babes on Broadway was originally performed in the 2012-13 season in Halifax and has since travelled to New Glasgow, Sheet Harbour, and Annapolis Royal.
