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.
We are not producing a Viking Varieties show in 2015. After much discussion, it was apparent that we needed to take some time to re-imagine the show. There are many ideas at work that will re-shape future Varieties productions, but not in time for Viking Days this fall. Stay tuned!
