The annual New College Revue is a significant fixture in the cultural & social life of the University of NSW. The Revue revisits the key events and personalities of the year both in College, the University and the world at large, offering an amusing and satirical look at events and personalities.

The New College Revue is the longest running annual revue of its kind on campus having its origins in the annual productions of “Garden Night” and “April Fool’s Night” which began in 1971. The original productions were the brainchild of the first Dean of the College Dr Phil Grouse who saw in these productions the possibility for greater artistic expression within the College. Through the decade of the ‘70’s these productions were fused into one which became a celebration of musical talent and the opportunity for residents to put together satirical skits and perform them before other members of the College, the University and the broader public.

The New College Revue is produced, directed and performed by the current residents each year. The Revue revisits the key events and personalities of the year both in College and the world at large, offering an amusing and satirical look at what has happened. It requires the work of at least 100 Collegians writing, editing, filming, acting, singing, dancing, producing and directing, back-stage work and front of house.
