Members of Kansas University’s greek community will gather for the 63rd time for another rendition of Rock Chalk Revue, an annual variety show fund-raiser.
“I fell in love with it the first time I did it as a sophomore,” said Jon Goscha, a senior from Salina who’s serving as the show’s co-executive director this year.
This year’s show, “Easier Said Than Done,” is scheduled for performances at 7 p.m. March 1 and 2 and 5 p.m. March 3. All shows are at the Lied Center.
Tickets go on sale on Monday, Feb. 13, and will be available at lied.ku.edu. Tickets are $21 for the performances on March 1 and 2 and $26 on March 3.
The organizations participating this year are:
• Beta Theta Pi and Chi Omega — “A Campus Carol”
• Phi Kappa Psi and Kappa Alpha Theta — “Your Wish Is My Command”
• Sigma Chi and Kappa Delta — “A Mall Story”
• Sigma Nu and Delta Delta Delta — “It Suits You”
• Sigma Phi Epsilon and Delta Gamma — “A Letter for U”
Harrison Drake, a sophomore from Overland Park from Sigma Nu, is directing “It Suits You.”
“You’re asking all these football players, lacrosse players to sing and dance,” he said. “But everyone kind of secretly has always wanted to do it.”
The groups will be celebrating a total of more than $1 million to the United Way of Douglas County since 1983. Last year, organizers donated a record $62,000.
