Howard Payne University students will perform in the annual Spring Sing event on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 28 and March 1, at 7:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively, in Mims Auditorium.
This year’s theme is “Remember When” and each participating group will perform a 12-minute original musical/theatrical sketch that will be filled with action, hilarity and inspiration. Student organizations participating in this year’s event include the Archery Club, Chi Alpha Omega, Delta Chi Rho, Iota Chi Alpha, Kappa Kappa Psi, Sigma Theta Phi and Tau Beta Sigma.
Spring Sing is a popular event on the HPU campus, drawing audiences of students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the community. General admission tickets are $5 for all audiences and are available for purchase beginning Monday, February 24. Tickets may be purchased at the Cashier’s Office (room 203 of HPU’s Packer Administration Building) or during lunch in the Mabee University Center. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door on the evenings of the event. Reserved seating tickets are available for $10 at the HPU Cashier’s Office but must be purchased by Thursday, Feb. 27.
A Spring Sing student committee, co-chaired by Kaitlin Vernon, a junior from Bangs, and Brandon Yost, a senior from Fresno, Calif., is coordinating this year’s production. Staff advisers include Francie Harvey, director of student activities; Nancy Pryor, resident director; Jake Sneath, resident director; and Dr. Brent Marsh, vice president for student life and dean of students.
“As a treasured tradition on campus, Spring Sing is the perfect opportunity for alumni and community members to visit campus,” Harvey explains. “We have more groups than ever, and audiences are going to experience each organization’s qualities and humor.”
