Broadway Fare has enjoyed success in Victoria, Sidney and Oak Bay.

Now this ensemble — featuring some of the best vocal talent on southern Vancouver Island — is stepping up to see what kind of life there is over the Malahat.

"This highly entertaining group is comprised of veteran musical comedy performers," the group's website states. "Their production Hats Off to Broadway was a smash hit in Victoria and Sidney ("A terrific show" Victoria Times Colonist) and they recently completed a 16-night run at the Oak Bay Beach Dinner Theatre."

Pianist Bob LeBlanc, founder of the Victoria Broadway Chorus, now leads this dynamic singing ensemble, which formed in late 2010.

LeBlanc was the originator and music director for two Victoria Operatic Society productions Legends of Broadway and On Broadway. He produced, directed and performed in more than 80 productions at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel Dinner Theatre, the most recent being "Celebration, a New Beginning" in the spring of 2013.

His featured singers include sopranos Kristy Gislason and Merissa Cox, Lisa Tinney, tenor Dwayne Gordon, baritone Timothy Kyle and bass Stan Davis — each with a lengthy resume of shows with some of Victoria's most noted ensembles

The group will take to the T. Gil Bunch Theatre stage — located at Brentwood College — on Thursday, May 29 at 8 p.m.
