— Students at the Duke University School of Law will present their third annual variety show, Tricky Dick, this Friday and Saturday.

The show features members of the school singing and dancing in various sketches that poke fun at former president and Duke Law graduate Richard Nixon as he runs for student body president.

Tricky Dick will be performed at the Durham Arts Council and is expected to run for two hours. Tickets can be purchased at the law school from noon to 1:30 p.m. every day this week or at the door beginning an hour before show time. They cost $15 for Friday's performance and $10 for Saturday's.

All profits from the show will be donated to Duke's Public Interest Law Fund to support students pursuing summer jobs in public interest.

Show times are as follows:

  • Friday, April 6: 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 7: 2 p.m.

In year's past, they have performed Beyonce's "Single Ladies" and other songs, like this hip-hop medley below (dancing starts about a minute in):
