Every few years, Deltas bring the Jabberwock to Savannah, an exciting evening of exceptional talent, featuring our youth in drama, dance, spoken word, song. The highlight of the event is the crowning of “Miss Jabberwock.”
So what is the Jabberwock? In an interpretation of the immortal classic, “Alice in Wonderland,” Lewis Carroll created the delightful character known as “Jabberwocky, ” a creature made of different parts of several animals, each contributing to make a whole. As the story goes, each year, the Jabberwock summoned all the creatures of the kingdom to put on a show – a gala event.
Conceptualized in 1925 as a musical variety show that consisted of skits and dances, the Jabberwock has since evolved into a more diverse program that continues to raise funds for scholarships, mentoring program and other Delta sponsored public service projects.
Jabberwock is a part of Delta’s tradition. It was accepted at the 1927 Delta National Convention and a copyright was obtained making Jabberwock an exclusive fundraising project of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
On Friday, May 14, 2010- 7:30P.M., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. – Savannah Alumnae Chapter will present the Jabberwock at the Savannah Civic Center Theater, and you don’t want to miss it.
