Waa-Mu Show

“THE SECRET OF CAMP ELLIOTT”

Dear Supporters,

We are pleased to share with you all the 90th Waa-Mu Show will be The Secret of Camp Elliott! It will be another groundbreaking virtual show premiering in late spring of 2021 and we hope you will be able to join us! 
The outdoors, some friendly competition, and… a conspiracy? In the Summer of 1977, three best friends arrive for their first summer of fun at Camp Elliott, where all the campers are divided into two teams which will go head-to-head in a series of challenges in order to win Camp Elliott’s annual competition. Throughout the summer, these campers seek out victory, love, and liberation, but they soon discover that not everything is as it seems. When camp becomes the location for some very mysterious and seemingly supernatural events, they must put aside their differences in order to unveil THE SECRET OF CAMP ELLIOTT!

In order to put on the Waa-Mu Show every year, we rely on the generosity and support from our Waa-Mu alumni, supporters, friends and family. Your support will directly contribute to the Waa-Mu Show and thus support the creative efforts of our actors, producers, marketers, crew, and entire team! Please consider making a gift to this year’s 90th Annual Show to keep the tradition alive!

About Waa-Mu

The Waa-Mu Show is Northwestern University’s own original musical, written, performed, and presented by Northwestern students.

The Waa-Mu Show’s quirky name stands for the two organizations that banded together to present the first show in 1929, the Women’s Athletic Association (W.A.A.) and the Men’s Union (M.U.). Since then, Waa-Mu has become a virtual institution for budding young theatrical talent. As Northwestern’s oldest theatrical tradition, The Waa-Mu Show provides undergraduates with the unparalleled opportunity to create an original musical each year. Students serve as leaders in every aspect of development from conception through production to create a show exploring themes and stories that inspire us as college students, challenge us as musical theatre artists, and engage us with our surrounding communities.

The Waa-Mu Show strives to place itself at the forefront of new musical theatre writing, continuing to push the limits of the “greatest college show in America” (Associated Press).
