Senior Perks, Musical Theater-Style

Written by

The 115th Annual Varsity Show will be upon us in less than two weeks, for four all-too-brief performances. The February preview promised a choreographed exorcism and drunken freshmen first-years galore. Does it get any better?

Yes, if you’re a Columbia College senior. Normally it’s five dollars to get in, but CC’09 is offering two hundred $2 tickets to the Saturday, May 2 show to College card-carrying seniors. That’s one and a half subway rides! Until the fare hike, anyway.

The tickets lead you to a special ’09 section where hors d’oeuvres will be served during intermission. Hors d’oeuvres. In Roone. It’s got to be better than dashing out to 212 for a chocolate croissant made out of tree bark.

Whether you anticipate each Varsity Show with avidity or need an excuse to get around to seeing one of these things in your last year, the deal is on the table. Just think about where you could go with that money! (Brooklyn, and half of the way back.)

  1. subway rider  

    i'm pretty sure 2 bucks only gets you one subway ride

  2. question  

    Are the seats in the balcony too? Or just the hors d'oeuvres.?

  3. Unfortunately  

    the reserved section is in the balcony because V-show wouldn't give us another space. That said your ticket will probably get you into any part of the show and the intermission food will be accessible to anyone with a senior ticket.

  4. that  

    has Darcy's name written all over it.

  5. the word  

    is 'freshmen'. Use it!

  6. yay  

    yay Darcy! she is so nice!

  7. for some reason  

    this sentence -- "dashing out to 212 for a chocolate croissant made out of tree bark" -- made me lol pretty hard.

  8. Well  

    either way, the senior class thought this was a good way to keep a tradition alive and get a good portion of our peers to vshow for cheap (and classy?).

  9. does

    "drunken first year" refer to a particular sink-related incident?

  10. when

    are tickets on sale
