The Hasty Pudding Institute of 1770 comprises the Hasty Pudding Club, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals and the Harvard Krokodiloes. Over the last two centuries, it has grown into a premiere performing arts organization, a patron for the arts and comedy, and an advocate for satire and discourse as tools for change worldwide.
As the oldest social club in the U.S., the Pudding has continued as a cornerstone of the Harvard experience for over two centuries. There is no other collegiate organization quite like it.
The Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the third oldest theater organization in the world, preceded only by the Comédie-Française and the Oberammergau Passion Players.
Harvard University’s oldest and most prestigious a cappella singing group, the Krokodiloes perform popular music from the 1920s through the 1960s.
