At long last, we've decided to update the Varsity Show website. The new platform is more media friendly, allowing us to put up the full videos of old shows, large photo slideshows, and of course, have a blog! We have also made it simple to contact the show's producers directly and sign up for updates about tickets sales. In the coming months, we'll be adding more videos, photos, and material, so stay tuned.
This is just the start of move toward a more digitized Varsity Show. In addition to the new site, we are working with the Rare Books and Manuscripts Library to present an online archive of materials dating all the way back to 1894. That means sheet music from the very first Varsity Show, pictures from rehearsals in John Jay Lounge in the 1930s, and posters and programs from the days Varsity Show performed at the Hotel Astor downtown.
The new website comes just in time for V119, which opens in less than a month! Check back here for more information and publicity videos as we get closer. We're thrilled to be launching an updated platform for the first time in a decade, and hope you enjoy the new site. We expect there are still a few kinks to be ironed out, so don't hesitate to shoot us a message with ideas about what you might want to see on the website. In the meantime, enjoy exploring past shows, read up on some v-show history, and we'll see you at V119!
