Students, alumni, families, friends and guests of the University will come together April 9-11 for the 47th annual Spring Sing. The musical variety show will feature more than 1,000 students.
The theme for this year’s show is “Once Upon a Time.” Juniors Maxwell Ross, Julie Goddard, Holden Montgomery and senior Ava Galyean were selected hosts and hostesses for this year’s musical extravaganza.
“This year’s Spring Sing theme incorporates the idea of storytelling and how we have the power to write our own story,” said second year hostess Goddard. “This is exciting because, as a theatre major, storytelling is my passion.”
Each club show is judged, and the results are tallied and announced at the end of the last performance. The clubs compete for cash prizes to be donated in their name to the local charity of their choice.
Steven Frye, director of Spring Sing and chair of the theatre department, says this year’s show will lead you on the adventure of a lifetime.
“Once upon a time. Four simple words. But the words transport you – you know at once what it is you’re about to see and hear,” said Frye. “You may not know the details. You may not recognize the characters. But you are ready all the same to take on all of the unknown, because you know it leads somewhere. Whether it is fantasy, history, mystery, or the first days of college, you know the story will bring you home. Come let us tell you a story this spring. It starts ‘Once Upon a Time.’”
