What is Frosh Revue?
No matter who you ask, no matter when you ask, no matter how you ask, it will always be abundantly unclear what Frosh Revue actually is, even to the people who are a part of it. It is equal parts cult, theater troupe, dance team, fraternity (but one of the nerdy ones), and spiritual awakening. Also, it was allegedly started at Williams by legendary Stephen Sondheim, class of 1950.
Each year, auditions are held for Frosh Revue, where incoming frosh are given 10 minutes in front of the directors of the group to do absolutely anything they want (like literally, anything). See Legendary Past Auditions for examples.
Approximately 10 freshman are selected to be a part of the group, and they proceed to rehearse almost every single night of the first half of fall semester in order to put on a semi-comedy, semi-improv, semi-dance, semi-propaganda ad for Family Days. They spend so much time together that they basically become family!
The show is described as "a comedic, family-friendly celebration of the Williams first-year experience. Appearing annually since time immemorial, Frosh Revue features ten energetic freshman stars and an hour of zany fun in this traditional fall offering. Tickets required!"
Legendary Past Auditions
In 2018, someone's audition consisted of sitting down in a large beanbag chair, taking their shirt off, opening a packet of dry ramen and eating the entire thing (including the spice pack) without water, and watching vine compilations.
In 2017, someone's audition was an oral presentation of Shark Boy and Lava Girl fan-fiction.
In 2016, someone got some scrambled eggs from Paresky, put them in a bag, brought them to the audition, and threw them at the directors. They were everywhere.
