The famous Greenwich Village Games revue performance is held on the Saturday night of the Games weekend.
Each team performs a 10 minute skit, responding to a theme word set by the Organising Committee. What will ‘the word’ from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics be?
Typically these skits involve singing, dancing, and acting by as many team members as possible, and a commitment to being OK with publicly embarrassing themselves. The skits are performed on the stage erected on Bob Campbell Oval with full audio and stage production. There is a separate prize for the Revue with a perpetual trophy.
All members of the public are welcome to come down and join in the fun! We invite the general public including friends, family and neighbours to come down to the oval from around 6pm Saturday night to enjoy this awesome night of community fun. Bring a blanket and picnic chairs and make a night of it sharing in a great night of local entertainment and delicious food stalls. Performances are expected to finish around 10:30pm.
