Rock Chalk Revue announces participants for 64th production

LAWRENCE — Rock Chalk Revue, the annual variety show produced by University of Kansas students to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters Douglas County and KU Endowment’s Dream Maker Fund, has selected five groups for its 64th production, scheduled for Feb. 28–March 2 at the Lied Center. The Rock Chalk Revue advisory board chose “All Bets are Off” as the 2013 show’s theme and announced participants at a Nov. 19 ceremony in Lawrence. Winning groups and their titles:

  •  “The Catcher Gone Awry,” Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and Pi Kappa Phi fraternity
  • “Joke’s On You,” Kappa Delta sorority and Sigma Nu fraternity
  • “Liberty by Lunchtime,” Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and Beta Theta Pi fraternity
  • “Birds of a Feather,” Gamma Phi Beta sorority and Sigma Chi fraternity
  • “Money Talks,” Delta Gamma sorority

The revue is nationally recognized as one of the largest student-run philanthropy activities in the United States. Last year’s show raised $64,000 for the Douglas County United Way. Since 1991, Rock Chalk Revue has raised more than $1 million. Rock Chalk Revue students set a $50,000 goal for the 64th anniversary show and hope to increase that amount.

KU students write and produce the annual satirical musical revue as well as fill leadership and fundraising roles. Judges selected five shows from 12 entries.

The Rock Chalk Revue advisory board includes 20 students and three advisers. The advisers are Rueben Perez, director of the Student Involvement and Leadership Center; Aaron Quisenberry, associate director of the Student Involvement and Leadership Center, and David Johnston, marketing director at the KU Alumni Association.
