What's a Revue?

A revue is a variety show with skits, music and dance based around contemporary news and issues, university life and the faculty or school on which it is based. Sydney University has had a strong revue presence for many years now.

The Science Revue Society was established in 2005 to showcase the talents of the students of Sydney University's Faculty of Science through the management of the Society and production of the Revue.

In 2006, the Science Revue had its inaugural performance, 'Quantum Tunnelling for Dummies', which wowed audiences and critics, securing the Science Revue's place in Sydney University's Revue Program.

The Science Revue has gone from strength to strength in the years following its inaugural performance, producing high quality shows like 'Pulp Friction' in 2007, 'Radius of the Lost Arc' in 2008, 'Jurassic Quark' in 2009, 'Sherlock Ohms and Dr Wattson in 2010 and 'NASAblanca' in 2011. Each show is a culmination of the effort, skills and talents of the Science Revue Society's members.
