Get Ready For … 40th Annual Spring Sing Production at OSU
Tuesday, April 12, 2005
Oklahoma State University’s annual Spring Sing production, set for April 16 at Gallagher-Iba Arena, has teamed up with Coaches vs. Cancer for the show’s 40 th anniversary.
“This is the first year Spring Sing has incorporated philanthropy,” said Clint James, executive director for the show. “We are very excited about working with Coaches vs. Cancer, and we’ve set a goal to raise $5,000 for them by donating a portion of each ticket sale and selling Coaches vs. Cancer wristbands.”
The show, scheduled for Saturday at 6:30 p.m. during Mom’s Weekend, includes performances from 11 fraternity and sorority groups.
The overall theme for this year’s show is “Get Ready For …” Each group’s act, which lasts 7 minutes and consists of popular songs with rewritten lyrics, will complete the theme’s name with titles like, “Get Ready For A Night in the Jungle.”
“Each group develops an original theme, lyrics, choreography and costumes within a two month period,” James said. “The groups have really worked hard to come up with creative ideas.”
The Spring Sing steering committee, which is made up of student volunteers, plans and organizes the entire show. Students do everything from designing programs to running the light and sound equipment.
Tickets cost $10 in advance and $12 at the show, with $1 from each ticket being donated to Coaches vs. Cancer. Advance tickets are available on campus at the Student Union Hub beginning April 11. The day of the show, tickets will be for sale at the north entrance to Gallagher-Iba Arena beginning at 5 p.m.
