Singarama has returned to campus live and in-person for its 59th annual production following the cancellation of the event in 2020 and recording of the event in 2021. To inaugurate the momentous return of a beloved Lipscomb tradition, SGA invited students to enjoy the show with free tickets that were valid for opening night only.
This year’s Singarama theme is Storytime with a show made up of three groups and containing more than 200 students.
Erin Bell, senior and co-director of Fairytale, is looking forward to the chance to perform in front of an audience.
“With the audience, people are a lot more motivated to just have fun and put everything they have into it because people are watching and it’s the first normal one [show] in two years.”
Co-directors and friends, Ellie Miller and Shelby Bratcher decided to take on the directing role together for Mystery.
“We didn’t really think that we were going to have a whole lot of participation because of Covid, but we hoped that maybe we could bring it back to what it had been before,” Bratcher said. “I think we succeeded.”
History, a story of two women looking to go from rags to riches by pulling off the ultimate museum heist is directed by Mallory Nunley. Fairytale, the story of a boy who gets transported to a fairytale land alongside his sister is directed by Nate Pearce. Finally, in Mystery directed by Shelby Bratcher, a detective is looking for whodunnit at a dinner party filled with colorful characters. The show also featured performances by this year’s hosts, Lydia Jernigan, Shawna Mann, Kendall Patton, and Reiley Moore.
Performances will continue to take place March 25-26 with a matinee on Saturday at 2 p.m.
