While the Penn Glee Club has been performing on Penn’s campus since 1862, the types of shows performed have evolved over time. Before 1969, the Glee Club performed stand-up repertoire with several production numbers every December in Irvine Auditorium. In 1970, the Annenberg Center asked the Glee Club to be the premiere performance in the Zellerbach Theater. Such shows were performed on tour throughout the country. Since Handel with Hair, the Glee Club’s show has evolved into the musical revue form in which it still exists today.
