Variety shows at Augustana date back to the early 1940s, when faculty, alumni and students participated in the productions, which were organized and led by faculty members. Viking Varieties officially debuted in October 1953 in the Old Gym as the homecoming talent showcase.
In 2013, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of that show, the Department of Performing and Visual Arts, alumni artists and more than 200 student performers presented a “Varieties Like Never Before” at the Mary Sommervold Hall (shown above) inside the historic Washington Pavilion in downtown Sioux Falls.
Details for the 2014 Viking Varieties show will be announced in late summer 2014.
