This Is It

Directed by Various

Humorology is an annual musical/variety show show that takes place at the Union Theater of the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. The final performance consists of six original mini musical comedies that
are entirely written, produced and performed by six student groups and overseen by a student run executive board. It is also a judged competition. Having started in 1948, Humorology is one of the oldest
traditions at the UW Madison and has become the largest non-profit student service organization in Wisconsin.

The six original mini musical comedies are performed over a series of three nights. Each twenty-minute show takes popular music and adapts it into an original story full of singing, dancing, and, of course, plenty of comedy. What makes Humorology so unique is that, aside from the music score, everything is created by the students. Each show is written, directed, choreographed, and performed by the students themselves. Even the sets and costumes are student-made, and when backed by a professional tech crew, Humorology has been equated to the caliber of an off-Broadway production.
