Varieties has been showcasing the talent of Iowa State students for more than 80 years. Performances consist of 16-20 minute "mini-musicals" that are performed with original lyrics and choreography. Shorter acts, called vignettes, perform as well. A vignette consists of any talent that a student may have, from belly dancing to stand-up comedy. In this way, Varieties serves as Iowa State University's student talent show!
ALL students are encouraged to participate by either sharing their talents or assisting with the Varieties Committee. The SUB Varieties Committee organizes and produces this popular campus entertainment. They choose the overall theme, assist with skits and vignettes, and coordinate all aspects related to the performance.
