History of Gaieties

When Ram’s Head Theatrical Society was founded in 1911, Gaieties was born with it. That year, the group produced the first rendition of the show, known then as the “Football Follies,” a performance to rally students for the Stanford-Cal rugby game. The name was soon changed to the current “Big Game Gaieties.” From the 1920s ‘til the mid-1950s, the show was a revue of unrelated songs and sketches, sometimes three or more hours in length! In 1968, a misunderstanding between producers and writers led to the show not being produced. Gaieties returned to Stanford in 1976 as a staple of Big Game Week. The 1970s introduced the now familiar plot and theme of “Beat Cal!” What you witness tonight is 105 years in the making: the alchemy of blood, sweat, tears, and above all else, laughter.
